From Julie C.-
Lawsuit is based on state law requirement that charters pay rent in public buildings. Lisa D and Patrick S. along w Leonie have been examining this for a long time. It is finally happening. Let's hope it is successful: 1. We need the $ and 2. We know charters are only spreading like wildfire, especially the kind like pave, because they get the free rent/business start up- wout the business start up, we will see their applications dwindle I am sure. And don't miss the disgusting report on DOE tactic at end of email.
