Thanks for the tip. FYI: Summary judgment was rendered and most of the charges stayed in. It will be interesting to see what happens in court! Wow these are some serious charges! I was shocked when I read it was against the OWNER BRUCE BARR!!! One question: How can a school bus company stay in business when the owner himself is charged with these issues. I do not think school districts research the companies background very well. WE ARE ENTRUSTING our CHILDREN to the company! God forbid!
Researched...yes the summary judgment was finalized. The majority of the chages remained in tact. I will be interesting to see the outcome in court!
