U.S. District Court Denies St. Paul’s Episcopal School’s Injunction Request

    Today, Wednesday, June 27,  the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Alabama entered an order denying St. Paul’s Episcopal School’s request for a preliminary injunction to set aside the classification and sports team alignment of member private schools using the competitive balance formula and 1.35 multiplier approved by the Central Board of Control last November.
    Legal counsel for St. Paul’s Episcopal School filed a lawsuit and a request for preliminary injunction in the U.S. District Court in Mobile on May 24, and AHSAA legal counsel responded quickly filing a response asking the court to deny the preliminary injunction. The AHSAA’s legal counsel also filed a motion last week to dismiss the case completely.
     The Court announced it will enter a briefing schedule on defendants’ Motion to Dismiss forthwith.
     “We are pleased to have this initial phase of the lawsuit resolved,” Savarese said.  “We are still in litigation with this lawsuit; therefore, the AHSAA will have no other comment at this time.”
