W.Va. teachers win court victory CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia teachers who staged an 11-day wildcat strike this year won a major victory Friday when the state Supreme Court ruled a county judge had no right to order them back to work.
The five justices unanimously overruled Kanawha County Circuit Judge John Hey's statewide back-to-work order. The opinion written by Justice W.T. Brotherton Jr. said Hey had no jurisdiction to issue an order that would affect the rights of teachers outside Kanawha County.
