A New York judge has blocked the state from withholding $250 million from New York City schools as punishment for missing a deadline for adopting a teacher evaluation plan.

State Supreme Court Justice Manuel Mendez on Thursday granted a preliminary injunction freezing the penalty until a lawsuit challenging it is settled.

All of the state’s 700 school districts were supposed to adopt a teacher evaluation plan by January in order to collect their share of a state aid increase this year. But when New York City and the United Federation of Teachers couldn’t agree on a system in time, the state said its share was lost.

Thursday’s court order says the parents challenging the constitutionality of withholding funds as punishment have a chance to win their case.
