BRIDGEPORT - The Connecticut Supreme Court has overturned the ruling of a judge who ordered Bridgeport Superintendent of Schools Paul Vallas removed from his job because he was not qualified.

Vallas, however, already decided to leave the post to be Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn's running mate for the 2014 election.

A state judge ruled in July that Vallas improperly received a waiver to state certification requirements.

However, the Supreme Court overturned the ruling, saying the plaintiffs did not bring their challenge of Vallas' credentials to state education officials first.
