Redistricting Fever: Bratz on Trial!

Hey, remember that time a group of parents formed FairfaxCAPS, a pro-public-school booster club to provide positive input to the not at all controversial redistricting process involving South Lakes High School, Bratz and a bunch of foreign-sounding IB classes that apparently teach kids to not wear American flag lapels? And then remember how they decided the best "input" was a frivolous groundbreaking lawsuit, funded by Christmas ornaments and Indian cuisine?

Yeah, that was awesome. Well, turns out the court date has been set.

Thanks to the support we received from hundreds of friends and neighbors from around the community and across the county, FairfaxCAPS has been empowered to engage attorneys in a landmark case to overturn the Fairfax County School Board's recent decision to redistrict our schools. This case, scheduled to be heard in Circuit Court in early July 2008, will make it clear that the Fairfax County School Board is accountable for its actions and must operate within State law. While winning this battle will not be easy, we are confident in the soundness of our legal claims and the abilities of our legal team.
And here they are -- the legal team that will strike fear into those evil school board attorneys and compel the judge to order that every Fairfax County student (and those from Loudoun County too, just for good measure) be forcibly bused to Langley High School:

Court adjouned!
