HENRY COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) – The Martinsville reversion process is causing tense times between the city council and the Henry County School Board that could be heading to court.

The Martinsville City Council voted 3-2 on Tuesday, April 26 to hire an attorney. The lawyer will contest the constitutionality of a bill putting the issue of the reversion before voters in November.

City attorney Eric Monday spoke before the council and said a review found that the bill is unconstitutional.
