Laying Down The Law: Nearly Half A Dozen School Board Members Canned By Judge For Unlawful Mask Mandates – More To Come!

We have been covering the head to head war that is taking place between parents and school boards around the country.  We are beginning to see parents declare victory over some of the tyrants in their government and this story out of Pennsylvania is no different as 5 members of a local school board were removed from office by a judge for unlawful mask mandates they issued.

The Daily Mail reported.

Chester County Judge William Mahon ordered five of its nine members to be immediately removed from the West Chester School Board on Tuesday after they voted to make masks mandatory at the beginning of the school year. 

It kept the decision in place after the Pennsylvania state of emergency ended in June and two months after the state’s Supreme Court declared the mask mandate unconstitutional in December. 

President Sue Tiernan, Joyce Chester, Kate Shaw, Karen Herrmann, and Daryl Durnell were all fired after they failed to respond to a February petition – brought forth by parent and former English teacher Beth Ann Rosica. She said the board had no right to force students to wear masks. 

“Once the Supreme Court declared that was unconstitutional … we implored our school board, we asked and asked and begged and pleaded and made comments to lift the mask mandate, and they refused,” Rosica said to WHYY News.

“I did not believe they had the legal authority to mask our children. I want to ensure they will never be forcibly masked again,” she said in her petition, which was joined by fellow parent Shannon Grady.

Ms. Grady went on to state that as she studied Pennsylvania’s Public School Code that she “started the research on this back in August, when I realized the schools were going to continue to mask children.”

She was attempting to discover whether the school board had any lawful authority to mandate mask wearing.

“I found that loophole for removal of the school board,” she said.

Interestingly enough, she found that a provision of the law allowed for the removing of a board member “for failure to organize or neglect of duty.”

According to the law, “any ten resident taxpayers” can file a petition with the Court of Common Pleas, and the court “shall grant a rule upon the school directors, returnable in not less than ten or more than twenty days … to show cause why they should not be removed from office.”

The board members “shall have at least five days’ notice of the granting of the rule.”

Superintendent Robert Sokolowski worked at damage control by sending out a letter on Tuesday evening.

“The decision states that the removal of the board members named in the petition was a ‘procedural result’ and does not address any of the allegations made in the complaint. Special counsel to the district is in the process of preparing a substantive response on behalf of those school board members named in the petition,” he wrote.

The fact that more and more parents are standing up and dealing with their corrupt and tyrannical representatives is evidence that they are becoming aware of just how lawless the system has become.

May many more follow in the footsteps of these moms and dads.
