PIERRE — The state will not seek to collect legal fees from parents who filed an unsuccessful lawsuit challenging South Dakota’s system for funding school districts, Attorney General Marty Jackley said Monday.

A group of parents has sued the state, arguing that rural schools don’t get enough state aid to provide an adequate education. A judge ruled in 2009 in favor of the state, which says that courts cannot force the legislature to spend money or change education policy.
