CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Lawyers for the Wyoming superintendent of public instruction are back in court after lawyers for the state conceded in a court filing that the bulk of a law passed last year that stripped most duties from the superintendent is unconstitutional.

Superintendent Cindy Hill argued in a brief filed Monday that parts of the bill cannot be kept in place if the law is unconstitutional.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://tinyurl.com/qehl9ra ) the brief is in response to one filed by the Wyoming Attorney General’s Office last week asking that some parts of the law remain in effect.

Attorneys for the state did not dispute that transferring powers from Hill to an appointed Department of Education director should be declared unconstitutional, but said her duties should be limited.
