RICHMOND, Va. — A judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed in 2013 against the city school board.

Parent Kimberly Jones filed the suit after the closing of Clark Springs Elementary School.

She claimed that board members Kim Gray, Kristen Larson and Glen Sturtevant created a rezoning plan that discriminated against minority students to appease wealthy families from mostly white neighborhoods.

Gray, Larson, and Sturtevant have denied those allegations.

And a Richmond Circuit Court judge has now dismissed the lawsuit ruling that Jones no longer can be considered an “aggrieved party,” because she has since removed her child from the Richmond Public School System.
