OK, let's end this week with two straight posts about inappropriate people who are involved in elected affairs regarding the Board of Education, shall we? To wit, this article about Allen Dyer and his impeachment trial.
So, long story short, this administrative law judge may not issue his ruling until after Dyer is no longer on the board. And then, there could be an appeal to the state board, who could then hear further arguments, and then, render a decision to either uphold or overturn the decision. Yumpin' Yiminy!!!
This whole thing, in my view, is kind of unfair. To all sides. I urge the administrative law judge to rule soon after the close of arguments on September 6. For example, September 7 seems like a good day to render a decision. That would allow for sufficient time for an appeal to take place prior to the November election, much less before the new board taking office in December.
Justice is supposed to operate in a timely manner. With all due respect to the administrative law court, this doesn't seem to be very timely. In fact, I think it sucks. How these courts work ought to be an issue addressed by the 2013 General Assembly.
