Drug test suit awaits decision

Last May, the East Baton Rouge Federation of Teachers won a critical lawsuit (more here), guaranteeing that educators injured on the job do not have to submit to a drug test before they can be treated for their injuries.

Now the second shoe is about to drop. As Advocate reporter Bill Lodge, who has been on the case from the start, writes here, the teacher who brought the original suit has a federal case against the school board's risk management specialist (the people paid to find ways around employee rights).
