State court nears school-finance decision - State court nears school-finance decision: "The Texas Supreme Court is trying to decide a legal challenge to the state's school finance system by the end of this month, a spokesman said.

'We're not making any promises, but that's the hope,' Osler McCarthy said.

State District Judge John Dietz in the fall declared the funding system unconstitutional and inadequate and gave the state until Oct. 1 to replace it, which the Legislature failed to do during three sessions this year.

Attorney General Greg Abbott appealed Dietz's ruling to the high court, which heard lawyers' arguments July 6. Although it often takes the Supreme Court longer to decide cases, McCarthy said justices are 'working diligently to get something out by the end of September.'"
