Judge Hears Arguments in Wyo. Schools Chief Suit

Doug Randall, Townsquare Media

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) ā€” A district judge in Cheyenne says he will rule in a week whether to restore the powers and duties recently taken away from state schools Superintendent Cindy Hill.

Judge Thomas Campbell heard more than two hours of testimony and arguments Thursday in Hill’s lawsuit challenging a new law that removed her as head of the Wyoming Education Department.

The law replaces the superintendent with a director appointed by the governor but keeps the superintendent as a statewide elected official.

Advocates of the law say the change was necessary because Hill was disregarding school reform laws and doing a poor job of running the department.

Hill’s lawsuit contends the law is unconstitutional. She’s asking to be restored as the agency head while the issue is litigated.
