Parent group sues Los Angeles Unified asking for full reopening of schools

ALos Angeles parent group filed a lawsuit Wednesday against the Los Angeles Unified School District and district Superintendent Austin Beutner, calling for a return to full-time, in-person instruction to the extent possible.
