Lincoln County parents and two anti-consolidation groups have filed a lawsuit seeking to block a state plan to combine the county's four high schools.

Proposed is a new $30 million school, the most expensive ever built in West Virginia.

The Committee to Stop Discrimination Against Rural Children, the Save Harts High committee and parents whose children attend Hamlin, Harts, Duval and Guyan Valley high schools, have filed the suit in Kanawha County.

Named as defendants are Lincoln County Superintendent Bill Grizzell, state Superintendent David Stewart and the state school board.

The suit seeks to maintain community based schools which the groups say produces a better education.
