Judge refuses to halt firings of 18 JCPS teachers

A judge has refused to stop the firings of eighteen Jefferson County Public School teachers.

The teachers and their union say the school district decided not to renew their contracts without giving them a chance to fix any deficiencies.

They filed suit earlier this year.  The school district says the teachers did receive proper notices and that their disciplinary problems justify the non-renewals.

The judge's ruling allows the teachers' lawsuit to continue.  Some of them sought an injunction, in part, to let them keep health insurance benefits after the end of the month.
