3 Birmingham School Board members file suit

Birmingham, AL (WBRC) - Three new Birmingham school board members have filed a lawsuit against the board.

Tyrone Belcher, Emanuel Ford, and Edward Maddox filed the suit asking the board to table the vote on a new president and vice president until the next meeting so that new board members can participate in the process.

Board president April Williams says the board was just following protocol that says the vote for new officers needs to be at the first meeting in November. The board did table the vote, and will address it at the next meeting.
