NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A judge ruled in favor of parents who sued a Nashville charter school.
Wednesday's ruling granted them class action status in their legal fight against RePublic Schools Nashville.
Some parents said RePublic Schools spammed them with text messages all to recruit students from Metro Schools to the charter school. Sending auto dial messages without the recipient's consent is illegal, but attorneys said more than 4,000 parents received texts from the school, adding up to about 15,000 messages total.
