The parents of a brain-damaged former Florida high-school soccer player may get to bring their negligence lawsuit before a jury, depending on how the state Supreme Court rules. The court is weighing whether to undo the suit’s dismissal by two lower courts.

Lynn Hatter reports the proposal diminishes the association’s ability to monitor illegal student athlete transfers, and the School Board Association is calling on the Governor to veto the bill.
