BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A judge will rule Tuesday afternoon in the Louisiana Federation of Teachers vs. State of Louisiana lawsuit.

The LFT is seeking to have Act 1 of the last Louisiana Legislature declared unconstitutional.

Act 1 is the instrument that changes the way teachers in Louisiana get tenure, pay and are evaluated.

District Court Judge Mike Caldwell said he will announce his ruling at 1:30 p.m. on whether or not to strike down the act.
