MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A lawsuit filed over the State Board of Education's policy against so-called "double-dipping" is headed to the Alabama Supreme Court.
The policy bans employees of the state's two-year college system from holding legislative and statewide offices. The board's policy came after reports of abuse and corruption at the two-year college system.
The Alabama Education Association filed suit disputing the ban, and Montgomery County Circuit Judge Johnny Hardwick struck down the
board's policies in November.
The school board is appealing Hardwick's ruling to the Supreme Court. Hardwick's court has now certified the record from that case for transmission to the Supreme Court.
