Cuthbert- Henry Cook filed a lawsuit claiming redistricting lines were unfairly drawn. He says representatives and other county leaders claimed he lived outside of District five, therefore he would not be able to run for reelection to the School Board.
On Monday, a superior court judge ruled that Cook does live in District five, and he is eligible to run for the school board district five seat.
Cook has been the District five school board representative for nine years. His opponent is Lee Jordan.
