Seventh Circuit holds that Indiana amendment to teacher tenure law violates the Constitution
December 4, 2017
In Elliott v. Board of School Trustees of Madison Consolidated Schools, No. 16-4168, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals held that an Indiana law that eliminated the right of tenured teachers to be retained over non-tenured teachers in the event of a reduction in force violated the Contract Clause of the United States Constitution. Bredhoff & Kaiser filed an amicus brief on behalf of labor economist Jesse Rothstein in support of the challenge to the Indiana law.
