    From the Wisconsin State Journal:

    Madison School District ordered to turn over sick notes

    Fox 11 TV–Green Bay


    Beginning with a request the WSJ made in May 2011, Dane County Circuit Court Judge Juan Colas ordered that sick notes submitted by Madison school teachers during the protests in February be turned over to WSJ. The District’s refusal was grounded on their contention that “the notes contain medically sensitive information and would cause “embarrassment and annoyance” to most of the teachers involved.” The WSJ made a counter-offer to accept the notes with teachers’ names redacted. Seems reasonable, right? The District still refused which led to the legal battle the District has now lost.

    And may they now start losing their jobs.

    If these were legitimate sick notes, then the District would have been correct about them containing confidential medical information, but since the record has established that the doctors falsified the conditions in writing the notes, their confidenciality should no longer be an issue. Once the names of the teachers are published, the District will be under a lot of pressure to discipline them, which they clearly don't want to do.

    About 17 Detroit Police officers at one precinct called in sick on Friday, to protest the new city budget. They are all suspended at the moment and are probably going to get fired.

    Good. Fire all of them. They should not be allowed to collect any benefits either.
