State Asks For A Rehearing In Hill Case

Jan 30, 2014

The state of Wyoming is asking the Wyoming Supreme Court to consider a rehearing over its ruling concerning State Superintendent Cindy Hill. 

The Court ruled three to two this week that taking away her power to run the State Department of Education was unconstitutional.  Wyoming Attorney General Peter Michael asked for the re-hearing Thursday. 

He said in a quote “After reviewing the opinion, the concurrence, and the dissent, I believe additional consideration is merited,” unquote. 

If a rehearing is granted the Supreme Court could stay its ruling.
