The Craig Pouncey lawsuit is headed for mediation.
Pouncey, the Jefferson County Schools superintendent, filed a lawsuit earlier this year alleging various Alabama State Department of Education employees and a State School Board member conspired to block him from becoming the state school superintendent.
Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Roman Shaul has now ordered the parties in that lawsuit into mediation and asked that they reach a settlement by Dec. 31.
