The Redistricting Fight in Union County is Now a Legal Battle


by WCCB Charlotte

UNION COUNTY, N.C. - The redistricing fight in Union County has now turned into a legal battle.  Hundreds of parents and students gathered on Sunday to stand behind a lawsuit that will be filed against the school board this week.  Parents say they must take legal action after the board voted "yes" to redistricting.

The momentum in Union County is picking up after a surprise vote by the school board on Tuesday to approve redistricting.  Parents say they have been stiff-armed, but they are not going away.

Hundreds of parents and students attended a rally that was held in Wesley Chapel on Sunday to put plan B into action.  With the help of attorneys like Joe Bochicchio, who is also a Union County parent, a lawsuit will be filed against the board this week.
