Wyoming Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill says Governor Matt Mead is using the courts to delay her return to leadership of the state Department of Education.

The state Supreme Court earlier this year struck down Senate File 104, which stripped Hill of leadership of the Department. The court also denied a request for a re-hearing.

The case has now been returned to District Court Judge Thomas Campbell, with attorneys for the state asking for a ruling on five points aside from the issue of her leadership of the department. Hill says the Supreme Court ruling clearly struck down the entire act, including those five points, and that she should immediately have her oversight of the department restored.

She also says the Governor is using the Attorney General's office to ask for more hearings when the high court ruling should have settled the issue.
