Ty Tagami attended virtually all of the hearings at the state where the dismissed board members (except Nancy Jester) appealed the decision to remove them.* He has posted a report on the AJC. Those with a “My AJC” account can read Ty’s report in its entirety. Otherwise, try to pick up a printed AJC or ask someone with an account to show you the article. It’s spot-on.
In a nutshell: The hearings have ended in the case of the DeKalb County school board shake-up, and if the testimony was truthful, then at least some of the suspended members did nothing improper.
* Keep in mind that these hearings are a completely different issue than Dr. Walker’s case at the Supreme Court. He is challenging the constitutionality of the 2 year old law that allowed the Governor to dismiss the school board. The five former board members are challenging their dismissal as they are allowed to by law, as it is currently written. Their judge can only recommend an action to the Governor. Gov. Deal can still make any decision he cares to.
