Vergara decision will not stand

From: Bob Bezemek, Attorney for AFT Local 1493
Date: June 11, 2011

The decision issued by a L.A. Superior Court judge in Vergara v. State of California, striking down California’s tenure, layoff, due process and seniority laws for K-12 teachers, will not stand. It is a product of right-wing ideology, rather than Constitutional law and reasoning. The decision ignores the facts proved in the case, and disregards governing law.
