ATLANTA — Lawyers for the former Atlanta Public Schools superintendent accused in a standardized test cheating scandal say their client is still too sick to stand trial.

Beverly Hall has Stage IV breast cancer. Her case was severed from that of the other 12 former educators who are now on trial after her doctors said she was unable to endure a months-long trial.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Jerry Baxter last week asked for an update on Hall's condition. Richard Deane, a lawyer for Hall, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ( ) in an email that Hall's legal team met with Baxter Friday.

Deane says Hall is not doing well and was in the hospital from Jan. 20 to Jan. 24 for complications from her cancer.
