CHEYENNE, Wyo. —  A judge will hear arguments on March 14 in a lawsuit filed by state Superintendent Cindy Hill that challenges a new law removing her as head of the Wyoming Department of Education.

Hill is seeking a preliminary injunction from District Judge Thomas Campbell. She contends that the law is unconstitutional.

The law replaced the superintendent as administrator of the education agency with a director appointed by the governor.

The law took effect last week after passing the Legislature and being signed by Gov. Matt Mead.

Lawmakers and Mead said the law was necessary to put Wyoming's education reform efforts back on track and restore order to the Education Department.
