The “Elephant Man” has won another round in court against the Albuquerque Public School Board.

On Monday, a federal judge rejected a motion by the board to reconsider an earlier ruling in favor of Ched MacQuigg, a former APS shop teacher who has harshly criticized the board and twice wore an elephant mask at meetings to protest what he says is the board’s infringing on his free speech rights.

“There being neither an intervening change in the law, new evidence previously unavailable, nor a demonstration of clear error in the Court’s (previous) ruling … defendants’ motions for reconsideration … are denied,” Chief U.S. District Judge M. Christina Armijo said in a terse ruling.
