Attorneys involved in a Kansas school funding lawsuit are preparing for a conference call with Chief Justice Lawton Nuss to discuss the state Supreme Court’s schedule for reviewing the case.

Monday morning’s call was set up by Nuss to discuss deadlines. But attorneys also expected to address the appointment of a mediator to oversee negotiations aimed at settling the litigation.

The court already has said the negotiations will occur as the case moves forward.

Several school districts and parents and guardians of students sued the state in November 2010.

The state is appealing a January ruling by a three-judge panel in Shawnee County that legislators must increase the state’s annual spending on schools by at least $440 million.
