Audio/Podcast of Joelle Ogletree Radio (Glen Rose) Interview with Ernie and Jay KRLD-November 20 2008

LINK  or if this link doesn't work, go to the Ernie and Jay audio page and see the interview with Ogletree.

As I'm listening to this, the Glen Rose Independent School District is still barring Ogletree from volunteering.  Cost in criminal defense $120,000. House would have been paid off by now sans that.

Section 1983 discrimination claim. Ashley Goodwin-male teachers have been treated very differently (I think one of these must be a reference to Erik Slaughter).

Judge Bridewell. Fall of 05 judge threw out the case, appellate court, ALL THREE JUDGES reversed his decision. SAME JUDGE just threw out the case again.  Different legal argument, first time was lack of jurisdiction, second argument her claim doesn't stand. Going to take back to the appellate court. Want to take it to a jury trial. Could hte case get assigned to a different judge?  Appeals court-when? Might take 6-7 months, last time it took 18 months.

What does Ogletree hope to get out of it? Setting precedent for others that are falsely accused (yes, you can stand up and fight). Would like to be a volunteer again. Plans to sue the complainants?

***My comment on what I heard. It appears that Judge Bridewell has decided to rule in favor of GRISD school board about throwing out her case. That would mean, I expect, that the guaranteed court date she was GOING to have in April is a moot point, at least temporarily. But since, as she said on the audio (or her attorney did) they're going to take this to appeals court, where LAST TIME the appeals court threw out Bridewell's verdict, chances are good that this will be back on a court docket. I do wonder how much time that will take, though, because suppose the appeals court does remand it back to the lower court again, where, as the attorney said today, the plaintiffs hope to get a jury trial. Seems like they'd have to wait.. again.. to get that on a docket to be heard. Ugh. Shame on the Glen Rose Independent School District school board. It's appalling that this has gone on so long.

P.S. I've been thinking about this some more. Joelle Ogletree had worked to get a guaranteed court date in April, 2009, which, frankly, seemed like a long time away. Meantime GRISD school board filed a motion to get a summary judgment from Wayne Bridewell in the 249th District Court  IN ORDER TO PREVENT HER from having her day in court. There's just no other reason for that. If the school district/board had honestly believed that they were not at fault, what in the world would they have had to fear from her taking this case to court? I haven't looked to see if one can see Bridewell's decisions online anywhere and I don't remember seeing this in the local paper, the Glen Rose Reporter.

I used to, naively, think that we had swift and speedy justice. Done with that.
