Vergara v. California (Cal. Ct. App. - April 14, 2016)

You know something's up when the first five pages of an opinion are devoted to listed the various counsel and -- especially -- amici in a case.  It's a high-profile opinion.

As indeed it is.  The Court of Appeal reverses the trial court's ruling that the system of teacher tenure in California violates the Equal Protection Clause.

No dissent.  Unanimous.

So the status quo remains.  For now, at least, teacher tenure in California is intact.

At least in the judiciary.
