By Jennifer Emert - bio | email ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The legal battle between Randolph County's former board chairman and other School Board members went all the way to the state Supreme Court Tuesday.
Justices are considering an appeal from former Chairman Henry Cook.
He had been at odds with a majority of board members for months when a judge ruled the majority had the right to fire the Superintendent and choose a new chair.
Cook's argument is that a state law that allowed him to be stripped of the chairmanship is unconstitutional.
Supreme Court Justices heard arguments in the case Tuesday afternoon.
The Justices sent former Superintendent Bobby Jenkins' case back to the appeals court because they found no constitutional issues with the matter.
