Hendrickson & Long PLLC Achieves another Victory For Children, Ensuring Access To Free, Quality Public Education Programs

Charleston, WV, United States, August 31, 2022 - Hendrickson & Long PLLC, along with national firm in Paul Hastings LLP and the Education Law Center, achieved a victory for two parent-clients and their families Wednesday, July 6, 2022, as Judge Joanna Tabit of the Circuit Court of Kanawha County granted West Virginia parents' request to halt implementation of the state's expansive new private school voucher law. The hearing in Beaver v. Moore resulted in Judge Tabit granting a preliminary injunction and permanently enjoining the program, which would have siphoned millions of public dollars from the state's underfunded public schools to subsidize private education.
"West Virginia has a proud history of prioritizing quality public schools for all the state's children, and that commitment is enshrined in our constitution," said Jack Tinney, co-counsel for the parent plaintiffs and a partner at Hendrickson & Long in Charleston. "We could not stand by and allow the voucher law to undermine West Virginia students' constitutional rights."
