Judge Says No to Parents Lawsuit Concerning Swine Flu

Montgomery, Alabama –
(AP) - A Montgomery County judge has refused to
order school officials in Elmore County to allow two students to do
their school work from home for the remainder of the school year
because of the swine flu scare.
Circuit Judge Charles Price said Monday that he did not have the
authority to order school officials to allow the 7 and 8-year-old
sons of Montgomery attorney Jerry Blevins to do their work from
home.
Price said Blevins and his wife, Carol, could withdraw their
children from school and home school them or enroll them in a
private school. He said any parent has that right.
