Chris Comer has Filed a Lawsuit

Chris Comer, alleging that the Texas Education Agency's position on evolution is unconstitutional, has filed a lawsuit to that effect in federal court. The suit reaches pretty far:

Comer's suit against the agency and Education Commissioner Robert Scott, filed Tuesday in the Western District of Texas, seeks a court order overturning the agency's neutrality policy on teaching of creationism, prohibiting any agency policy that "in any way credits creationism as a valid scientific theory" and reinstating Comer in her former position as director of science for the agency's curriculum division.

If all of the reports are correct, then her firing was truly a low point in education. Given the way these court cases are going, I don't think she will have any trouble.
