The Wyoming Supreme Court ruled last week that a 2013 law improperly stripped state schools chief Cindy Hill of power over public schools.

The law transferred power to a newly created position of director of education. Before the law, Ms. Hill, a Republican, had been feuding with officials over her handling of the department. The Casper Star-Tribune reported that she will return to work. What will happen to the director of education is unclear.

Ms. Hill, who has announced that she is running for governor, remains under investigation by a state legislative panel for alleged improprieties while she served as superintendent, including improper payments and nepotism.
