Mayor loses again on schools

Judge Dzintra Janavs denied a motion by the mayor's lawyers to delay enforcement of her December ruling that AB 1381 is unconstitutional. The whole issue is headed to the state Supreme Court in the spring and it appears that Villaraigosa's plan to strip power from the school board — and his move to take mayoral control of three high schools and their feeders — will have to wait at least until then.

On topic: Villaraigosa's endorsement today of Tamar Galatzan for school board puts him at odds with his union allies, the Times reports.
