I genuinely hope they are able to pursue this in court to its full conclusion. This wasn't just bad because of the proceedings that kept them from the job, but did it also have an impact on their pay? Future of their career? I personally see a significant payout being possible here - even though that shouldn't be the end goal. This superintendent is in clear violation of the law set by the State of Texas. If they're doing one violation, I guarantee they're doing others elsewhere too. This kind of person gives a bad name to administrators. Something unfortunate because I've been able to have a number of good ones over the years!
