Several education groups filed suit against Governor Paterson today to try to keep him from withholding scheduled school aid. They argued that Paterson is violating the state Constitution by unilaterally deciding to stop the payments, which have already been authorized by the state Legislature. Paterson, for his part, is holding his ground. And why not? The people love him. [NYDN]
