DeKalb County Schools has filed a lawsuit against the city of Atlanta for annexing residences adjacent to property owned by Emory University.

The annexation petition was signed by residents living in the University Drive and Spring Valley Lane area. The annexation, approved by the city last year, took in more than 100 residents on 16.31 acres, according to the lawsuit and a service plan found on the city of Atlanta website. The annexation also includes the Congregation Shearith Israel synagogue. Emory University owns the property next to residences on University Drive, DeKalb County tax records show.
