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.
