Laurie S. Cook, the one-time Northeast High School teacher who was found not guilty of charges of having sex with a male student, got an "F" in court yesterday for not turning in her assignment on time.Anne Arundel Circuit Judge Philip T. Caroom dismissed Cook's appeal of her firing because she failed to file required court documents explaining the reasons for her appeal on time."Cook might have rejected an assignment or a test which a student wanted to turn in more than two months late, as this would be unfair to more diligent students," Caroom wrote.
