This seems to be an incomplete file. Where is the outcome of the school board members' Motion to Dismiss? Where is the notice of Final Disposition to this matter?

This public records request is only Partially Complete. Please check the court file to see if you can find the documents that would explain what finally happened in this matter. Thank you.

From: Susan A.

I think you are incorrect. This file is incomplete since there is no order issued on the School Board member's Motion to Dismiss that I can locate in this file.

From: Susan A.

There is also no Final Disposition sheet. It is an incomplete file.
