Florida School Boards Association Abandons Lawsuit against Tax Credit Scholarship Program

Published June 12, 2015

The Florida School Boards Association (FSBA) announced the group would not file an appeal after their challenge to Florida’s tax credit scholarship program was dismissed.

The FSBA board of directors voted to abandon the lawsuit, according to a report in the Tampa Bay Times.

FSBA made this decision after Leon County Judge George Reynolds III threw out the case, saying FSBA and the other plaintiffs didn’t have standing to bring the lawsuit, according to the report.
