Supreme Court Rules On Education
Cheyenne, Wy – The Wyoming Supreme Court has ruled against the states request to declare the new school capital construction model constitutional. But it also ruled against appointing a special master to oversee school finance disagreements. Justice Michael Golden wrote that the court found that the matter does not represent the type of impasse that should invoke the court's retained jurisdiction. Deputy Attorney General Mike O'Donnell says the ruling is good for the state.
O'Donnell says the ruling allows for disputes to be resolved on a case by case basis. Governor Dave Freudenthal says the court is allowing schools to be built and any challenges to the process can occur within legislatively created mechanisms.
