A state supreme court Judge has ruled that a Westchester city may join a lawsuit against New York State over education funding.

The judge is allowing the City of Yonkers to join as a plaintiff with the New Yorkers for Students’ Educational Rights against New York State. The Yonkers City Council had sought to intervene on behalf of the plaintiffs -- students who they allege have been denied the constitutional obligation to ensure every school has sufficient funding for a sound, basic education. The judge also denied the state’s motion to dismiss the suit.
