A decision announced by Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine on Monday opens a new chapter in the growing turmoil facing the Omaha school board.
Kleine said Monday he plans to take legal action this week that could result in a special election to fill half of the 12-person board. The board waited too long, he said, when it swore in six members on Jan. 7, the first Monday of the month.
