The Georgia Court of Appeals reversed the Superior Court of Dougherty County’s decision, which had reversed Judge Howell’s decision affirming the Professional Standard Commission’s revocation of an educator’s teaching certificate. The Court determined that contrary to the superior court’s ruling, the educator had sufficient notice of the matters presented in the hearing and Judge Howell’s properly concluded that revocation was appropriate based on incidents involving sexual harassment and battery of a co-worker.
