The Court ruled that an educator who had surrendered his teaching certificate in New York State should still be eligible for a teacher certification in Georgia.  The Court based its ruling on the fact that the New York disciplinary proceedings did not allege any misconduct; rather, they were based on a separate disciplinary action that had taken place in Florida more than 20 years ago.
