Judge Won't Rule Today on Bibb School Lease

A Bibb County judge said he would not rule today on whether a multi-million dollar lease for a former school building was valid.

A lawyer questioned a Bibb County school board member about a multi-million dollar lease in a Friday-morning court hearing.

Attorneys, board members and school officials gathered at Bibb County Superior Court Friday for hearings on two lawsuits.

One was filed by a Bibb County man who wants Judge Edgar Ennis to throw out Bibb County Schools Supt. Romain Dallemand's contract.

The other was filed by former Bibb schools CFO Ron Collier. He wants the judge to order the school district to give him his old job back. He says he was punished for raising questions about a $1 million payment to a community group that now owns the building.
