JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – The attorney for the Lowndes County School Board is asking the Mississippi Supreme Court to reschedule oral arguments in two firing discrimination cases.

Oral arguments are scheduled for April 2 in Jackson.

In a motion filed this week, school board attorney Jeff Smith asks that oral arguments be held after the Legislature adjourns, now scheduled for April 6. Smith serves in the Mississippi House.

Smith notes the Mississippi Constitution allows legislators/lawyers to have cases continued until a legislative session concludes.

Lynn Wright is appealing his firing in 2010 by the board from his position as principal of New Hope High School principal. In a separate case, former longtime New Hope baseball coach Stacy Hester also was fired in 2009 and sued the school district.

The cases were consolidated on appeal.
