From Betsy Combier:

Also make note that NYSUT Attorney Shawn Kelly is now a judge!!!

Kelley has been responsible for falling in line behind Mayor Bloomberg in destroying the careers of excellent, caring teachers. When Chris Asch went to him to ask for his help in responding to the Appeal of the New York Law Department (they want to overturn the thorough and fair decision of Judge Manuel Mendez to vacate Arbitrator David Hyland's penalty of Chris' 6 month's suspension) he told Chris that Mendez's decision was terrible, and fellow NYSUT Attorney Aileen Naughton did an awful job at the 3020-a, but as Adam Ross, Claude Hersh, and Mike Mulgrew asked him to do the Response papers, he would do it.

I suggested that Chris ask NYSUT to help him, and felt very sorry for doing that when Chris called me immediately after he left Shawn's office. Chris hired Fred Aaron and me to help him instead. 

Just watch for bias and prejudice if you are a teacher and you end up before Judge Shawn Kelley.
