HSBA Appellate Section Testimony: Please Don't Muck Around With The Appeals Process
Here's the written testimony submitted by the Hawaii State Bar Association's Section on Appellate Law for today's hearing on a bill making its way through the Hawaii Legislature. The bills, HB 2191, and HB 2194, would return the state court appeals system to the way it was prior to the 2006 amendments, and would expressly give the Supreme Court jurisdiction to issue advisory opinions. The 2006 amendments made the Hawaii Supreme Court a truly discretionary court, allowing it to handle most of its docket by way of applications for certiorari from decisions of the Hawaii Intermediate Court of Appeals, which currently considers direct appeals in most cases from state trial courts. Prior to 2006, the Supreme Court was the court of first appeal, and it had the option to send cases to the ICA for a first look.

- Unsatisfactory rating voided because employee's "performance review," failed to comply with the employer's own procedures and thus undermined the integrity of the process Joyce v City of New York, 2018 NY Slip Op 03433, Appellate Division, First Department The Appellate Division annulled the determination of respondent New York City Department of Education [DOE] sustaining the "unsatisfactory" rating for the 2010-2011 academic year give to John Joyce, a tenured teacher. The court said that the record demonstrates "deficiencies in the performance review process" that resulted in Mr. Joyce being given an unsatisfactory rating for the 2010-2011 academic year. Citing Matter of Gumbs v Board of Educ. of the City Sch. Dist. of the City of N.Y., 125 AD3d 484, and Matter of Richards v Board of Educ. of the City Sch. Dist. of the City of N.Y., 117 AD3d 605, the Appellate Division noted that these deficiencies "were not merely technical, but undermined the integrity and fairness of the process." Mr. Joyce had received a satisfactory rating for the previous academic year and, in contravention of its own procedures, DOE failed to place him on notice that he was in danger of receiving an unsatisfactory rating for the 2010-2011 academic year until after April 28, 2011. Although DOE's procedures required that tenured teachers in danger of receiving an unsatisfactory rating have "formal observations including a pre-observation and post-observation conference by the principal … as part of a prescriptive plan to improve their teaching," Mr. Joyce received only one formal observation which took place one week before the end of the academic year and was not part of a prescriptive plan to improve his performance as a teacher.
