LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Attorney Teddy Gordon has asked a federal judge to reconsider a recent ruling affecting kindergarten students in Jefferson County.

Gordon says those students should be exempt from the new student assignment plan. He filed a request for an injunction which Judge John Heyburn initially denied, but Gordan wants Heyburn to reconsider allowing parents to send these youngest of students to schools closer to home.

"There are some areas that we think are contradictory to previous testimony, previous information that we've had and there are valid grounds to reconsider the temporary injunction," said Gordon.

According to Gordon, his office has received about 500 calls from parents who disagree with the assignment plan.
