BIRMINGHAM - AL -

The Birmingham school board is getting ready for a legal fight, after it rejected a reduction plan that could have prevented a state takeover.  The rejection was a deadlock, with four board members voting for the measure, and four voting against it.  Board member April Williams abstained.

After the vote, board members voted 5-4 to hire an attorney as an effort to fight off a state takeover.
