Judge orders halt to Douglas County voucher program
From the order "The Court finds that the injuries asserted by Plaintiffs, both economic and non-economic, are sufficient in quality and directness to establish standing. The prospect of having millions of dollars of public school funding diverted to private schools, many of which are religious and lie outside of the Douglas County School District, creates a sufficient basis to establish standing for taxpayers seeking to ensure lawful spending of these funds, in accordance with the Public School Finance Act. Similarly, these same circumstances are sufficient to establish standing for students, and the parents of students, seeking to protect public school education."
