State appeals IEN ruling to Idaho Supreme Court

Idaho has filed a notice of appeal following 4th District Judge Patrick Owen’s final ruling yesterday squarely against the state in the lawsuit over the Idaho Education Network. Idaho EdNews reporter Kevin Richert reports that Camille Wells of the IEN sent out an email late yesterday to school district superintendents, principals and technology directors, saying, “The state filed a notice of appeal today, which will provide a 14-day stay of the judge’s decision.” The email also suggested school districts continue trying to qualify for federal e-rate funds for broadband on their own, as a “contingency” plan. Richert’s full report is online here. The state's appeal is to the Idaho Supreme Court, which already ruled against the state in a strongly worded earlier ruling in the case.
