Supreme court of Virginia puts a hold on closing Sweet Briar College, agreeing with alumni that objective third party should review school's finances.
"The Supreme Court of Virginia has put a temporarily hold on plans to shutter Sweet Briar College, buoying students and alumni who have rallied to keep the 114-year-old women's school open, reports The Wall Street Journal.... The state's highest court extended an injunction Tuesday that blocks Sweet Briar officials from actions to facilitate the shutdown and sent the case back to a lower court to assess issues raised by the opponents, who are seeking an outside review of the college's finances." -- the Chronicle of Philanthropy
