Johnson Abdallah to Appear Before Supreme Court in School Funding Case

Feb 1, 14

Johnson, Abdallah, Bollweg & Parsons, LLP has been representing a group of students and parents in a constitutional action involving the South Dakota public school finance system. The case is being supported by almost two-thirds of the school districts in the state. The South Dakota Supreme Court has announced that oral argument for the case has been set for January 11, 2011 in the state capitol building in Pierre. The date of the argument coincides with the opening of the Legislative Session.

Attorneys Scott Abdallah and Pamela Bollweg  represented the students and parents at trial.

Ron Parsons, who heads the firm's appellate department, will present oral argument before the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court has set aside almost two hours of time for oral argument, which is approximately twice the time that it usually allows.
