A D.C. Superior Court judge yesterday ruled against a grandmother hoping to bring Mayor Adrian M. Fenty's school takeover before voters — a decision that likely ends any challenge to the mayor's proposal and allows him to assume official control of the public school system next week.
Activists hoping to bring Mayor Adrian M. Fenty"s school takeover plan before voters yesterday were granted a last-minute hearing, which could decide the fate of their challenge.
"The change of decision in this case was made in a reasonable time," Judge Leibovitz said. "I find that the delay here was not unreasonable even in light of the need for haste in the referendum process."
But Judge Leibovitz said the referendum would not just "undo the takeover" and instead would give Mr. Fenty, a Democrat, budgetary control of the system without placing anyone in actual authority over the schools.
