The Maine Civil Liberties Union (MCLU) might take up the cause of about 30 teach
The Maine Civil Liberties Union (MCLU) might take up the cause of about 30 teachers who refuse to be fingerprinted as required by a new state law. The MCLU's legal panel met last week to consider options. About 45 educators are waiting for the MCLU's decision, which has been months in the making, before moving forward on their own with a Bangor lawyer. Bernard Huebner, organizer of Maine Educators Against Fingerprinting (MEAF), said he welcomed the interest. Suzanne Malis-Andersen, the first teacher to threaten publicly to quit over the issue, was concerned by the MCLU's delay. Heubner said the MCLU might refuse the case because of the lack of legal precedent, but said the MEAF might ask them for financial help even if the organization won't accept the case.
