Attorney General Pruitt Statement on Lindsey Nicole Henry Scholarship Decision


“From the beginning, we believed it was improper for these school districts to sue the parents of special needs children simply for following the law,” Attorney General Scott Pruitt said. “We are pleased Oklahoma’s Supreme Court agreed, and ruled that these school districts lacked standing to make their claims against the children’s families. The Lindsey Nicole Henry Scholarship Act is the law and districts must follow the law.”
