Follow up: on remand the Nebraska Supreme Court again reverses the Commission on Industrial Relations in the dispute between the Hyannis Educational Association and the Grant Public School District ; Supreme Court rules in favor of school district that "deviation clauses" from union contracts between several other school districts and teachers' representatives were prevalent, whether they had open-ended or specified conditions, and therefore the CIR erred when it threw out the school district's deviation clause. Hyannis Educational Assn. v. Grant County. Sch. Dist. No. 38-0011, S-06-300The Supreme Court also declined to moot the case because of the Legislature's Class I Schools' consolidation bill from two years ago, 2005 Neb. Laws, L.B. 126.
