Edwards v. Lake Elsinore USD (Cal. Ct. App. - Oct. 30, 2014)

The good news for Lori Edwards is that the Court of Appeal holds that the trial court erroneously held that her complaint against the Lake Elsinore Unified School District was barred by the relevant limitations period.

The bad news, however, is that the Court of Appeal rules against her on the merits.  She was not, in fact, a permanent teacher.  She was a substitute teacher.  Even though she taught for the entire year.

So she's not entitled to employment for life even under California's (extraordinarily generous) tenure rules.
