Court ruling extends efforts to keep Sweet Briar open - KARIN KAPSIDELIS Richmond Times-Dispatch

A surprise split decision Tuesday by a Bedford County Circuit Court judge kept alive efforts to block the closure of Sweet Briar College. Judge James W. Updike Jr. ruled the county attorney for Amherst County does have standing under state law to challenge whether the college leadership is inappropriately using funds solicited for the operation of Sweet Briar to close it down. However, Updike also ruled Sweet Briar is a corporation, not a trust, siding with college attorneys and the state attorney general on one of two motions before the court.
