Cindy Hill returned last week as the head of Wyoming's education department, following a judge's ruling that puts to rest her bitter legal battle to regain the office.

The judge's order codified a Wyoming Supreme Court finding that the bulk of a state law that stripped most duties from the state superintendent was unconstitutional.

The overwhelmingly GOP legislature acted last year to strip the superintendent's office of its powers following bitter disagreements between some senior lawmakers and Ms. Hill, herself a Republican, over whether she was following legislative directives.
