The ruling in the Vergara lawsuit was thin on reasoning but deep in flaws. The appellate court could help California's teachers and students by reversing the lower court's verdict.

Dolores Huerta: "I do NOT support the Vergara v. State of California lawsuit." She goes on to say that Students Matter "blatantly misrepresents the facts" to push an anti-worker agenda.
