Statement on filing Article 78 appeal

April 4, 2022

While the district would have liked Justice Hartman to order the temporary restraining order, we appreciate that she set an expedited briefing schedule, which could mean we get a final decision sooner than later. Another judge will now be assigned to the case and will consider whether Commissioner Rosa’s directive that the district eliminate its use of the “Indians” nickname and logo should be stayed, pending a final decision on whether the commissioner acted arbitrarily and exceeded her authority. The district filed its appeal because the Board strongly believes the commissioner overstepped her authority.
