BATON ROUGE - Closing arguments ended a short time ago in the lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Gov. Bobby Jindal's new school voucher program.

Judge Tim Kelley recessed the court until 2 p.m., at which time he plans to give his ruling.

Teacher unions and school boards say the vouchers take money away from traditional public schools, and want the program shut down. State education officials say the system was set up in line with the constitution.

News 2's Adrian Pittman is at the courthouse and will have the latest updates starting at noon.
