Republicans, Justice Department Butt Heads Over Louisiana School Choice Lawsuit

The department says it will issue a brief on the remaining issues by Nov. 15.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal speaks in Orlando, Fla., on Aug. 30. Jindal has pressured the Justice Department to drop its legal challenge to his state’s school voucher program and said Tuesday the department’s claim it is backing down was a “PR stunt.”

The department said it will file a brief addressing the remaining issues in the lawsuit by Nov. 15.
