CHEYENNE, Wyo. — State schools Superintendent Cindy Hill will have to wait longer in her effort to regain control of the Wyoming Department of Education.

Laramie County District Judge Thomas Campbell decided Tuesday not to issue an order immediately reinstating Hill's former duties.

In January, the Wyoming Supreme Court ruled that a 2013 law that removed the elected superintendent as department head was unconstitutional. Legislators enacted the law after complaints about Hill's performance. Hill then filed a lawsuit to get her duties restored.

While the Supreme Court sided with Hill, it left it up to the district court to decide how the lawsuit should be resolved.

Campbell ordered attorneys for the state and Hill to file written analyses over the next three weeks on whether any parts of the law are constitutional.
