CUBA, Ky. (AP) — A southwestern Kentucky community is stuck with an unused school at the moment after a judge issued an order stopping its sale for the moment.

But, the Graves County Board of Education has been allowed to remove some materials from Cuba Elementary School while the legal drama surrounding the facility plays out.

Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd issued an order Wednesday allowing the district to remove a variety of supplies and equipment from the vacant building.

The Paducah Sun reported (http://bit.ly/1rDl7rw ) that four Cuba area residents sued the school board, alleging it mishandled the process of closing the Cuba school earlier this year.

The school district planned to auction off the property near the Kentucky-Tennessee state line in June, but halted that sale after Shepherd's order.
