The Buffalo Board of Education must hold back on spending money for new programs in city schools until a decision is made in the board's lawsuit against the Griffin administration and the Common Council, a federal judge ruled today.

U.S. District Judge John T. Curtin also ruled that there will be no further proceedings in the case until at least Feb. 7, when court-appointed accountant William Mahaney will file his report on the dispute.

Mahaney is examining hundreds of pages of charts and documents submitted by the School Board, which wants $287.1 million for the current school year, and city officials, who have appropriated $270.3 million.
