 A Judge is expected to rule on whether he will hear new evidence in the Texas' School Finance Case.

 The demand in this case is for the state legislature to restore $3.4 billion in funding to classrooms.

 In February the Judge ruled that the way Texas funded schools was inadequate and inequitable.

 This ruling was based on cuts made in 2011. More than 600 school districts were sued after the 2011 cuts arguing that they were unconstitutional.
