DOVER, Del. (AP) — Attorneys for Gov. John Carney have dropped their opposition to Delaware's education secretary and budget director being deposed in a lawsuit alleging the state is failing to provide adequate educational opportunities for disadvantaged students.

A judge had planned to hear arguments Thursday on a requested protective order preventing Susan Bunting and Michael Jackson from being deposed.

The hearing was canceled after Carney's attorneys informed the court the dispute over the depositions had been resolved.

Attorneys for the ACLU and Community Legal Aid Society say the two officials have knowledge and information that can't be obtained from others.
