District judge takes up superintendent case

By  | 

Cheyenne, WY (AP) - State schools Superintendent Cindy Hill is looking for another favorable court ruling in her effort to regain control of the Department of Education.
Laramie County District Judge Thomas Campbell scheduled a conference with attorneys for Hill and the state on Tuesday morning to decide what to do next in Hill's lawsuit against the state.

In January, the Wyoming Supreme Court ruled that a 2013 law that removed the elected superintendent as department head was unconstitutional. Legislators enacted the law after complaints about Hill's performance. Hill then filed a lawsuit to get her duties restored.

The Supreme Court said the law left the superintendent with too few duties but left it up to the district court to decide how the lawsuit should be resolved.
