A spokesman for the Texas Education Agency tells KFDM News a state district judge in Austin will hold a hearing at 4 p.m. Wednesday to consider the TRO.

Attorney Chris Tritico filed the motion for a Declaratory Judgment, Temporary Restraining Order, Temporary Injunction and Permanent Injunction on behalf of Gwen Ambres, BISD board president, and Janice Brassard, a BISD board member.

Education Commissioner Michael Williams has ordered a board of managers to replace the board of trustees, and a superintendent to replace Dr. Timothy Chargois, by June 15. He cited a TEA investigation that found serious problems with financial management in BISD and a loss of public trust.

Tritico filed a response, saying Williams has no authority to order a takeover and denying all of the elements of the TEA's findings.
