MIDDLETON, Wis. (AP) -- A Middleton elementary school teacher fired for viewing pornography at work could be back on the job soon.
The state Supreme Court has declined to take up an appeal of an arbitrator ruling by the Middleton-Cross Plains School District. Glacier Creek Middle School teacher Andrew Harris was fired in 2010 and six other district employees were suspended for viewing and sharing porn and sexually inappropriate images, jokes or videos on district computers.
District spokesman Perry Hibner tells the State Journal that Harris could be back at work within a month as a result of the Supreme Court's decision. It ends a four-year legal battle between the school district and the Middleton Education Association.
