AUSTIN, Texas -- A key state witness has admitted to making calculation errors when compiling a report she presented during Texas' school finance trial.
The mistakes were made as part of database findings that Lisa Dawn-Fisher had testified about over two days. Dawn-Fisher is the Texas Education Agency's associate commissioner for school finance.
The errors were discovered during Dawn-Fisher's cross-examination Wednesday. They were widespread enough that state District Judge John Dietz ordered the Texas Attorney General's office to fix them and compile a new version of the report by next week.
Dietz noted that the case, which began in October and will likely continue into next month, will eventually be appealed to the Texas Supreme Court.
He said the state high court deserves "the most accurate database the parties can produce."
