BEDFORD COUNTY (WSLS 10) - A lawsuit against the Bedford County School board has been dropped.

More than two-dozen community members filed the suit against the school board after it closed Body Camp Elementary.

The lawsuit claimed the school system shut the school down because it was the most predominately black school in the county. Parents also said that subsequent redistricting of it's students were racially motivated as well.

A judge denied their motion for a temporary injunction to keep it open.

The Bedford County School Board was notified the plaintiffs dropped their case Wednesday night.
