HARRISBURG, Pa. - There won't be an immediate resolution to a lawsuit seeking to overturn Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf's mask mandate in schools.

That's because the commonwealth court has stayed a hearing on the matter scheduled for Sept. 16.

The lawsuit was filed by Jake Corman, the state Senate's top Republican, and a group of parents.

The court is asking the petitioners to file a brief with details on why they believe the mandate is illegal.

The Wolf administration is being asked to file a response by Sept. 23.

Then a new hearing date will be scheduled.
