Court rules Bridgeport Superintendent Paul Vallas can stay on the job

BRIDGEPORT - Connecticut's highest court has ruled that Bridgeport's embattled school superintendent can stay on the job this fall.

Paul Vallas was ordered to leave the job immediately by a lower court in early July because they found he did not meet the state's certification requirements.

Yesterday, the state supreme court ruled he can remain in office while the city appeals.

Vallas says he thinks he will eventually prevail.
