A Cedar County judge on Tuesday allowed a Christian boarding school to remain open for now.
Cedar County Associate Circuit Judge Thomas Pyle’s ruling came a day after he took over the case involving Agape Boarding School in Stockton.
The Missouri attorney general’s office had asked Pyle to close the school after requesting the new judge for the case.
The state didn’t say why it sought a new judge.
A spokesman for State Attorney General Eric Schmitt declined comment.
