On Dec. 6, 2010, Larry Cohen and I brought charges to the Howard County Board of Education Ethics Committee concerning board member Allen Dyer's interaction with the student member of the board. A hearing on our charges was not held until March 3, 2011. The decision was not reported until April 12, 2011. We were advised that we were to maintain confidentiality until the Ethics Board made the results public.
Mr. Cohen and myself have made no public or private statements. However, Mr. Dyer has on several occasions published information and documents on the Internet and has made public statements with impunity.
