Assemblyman Patrick O'Donnell, D-Long Beach, limited speakers to one minute of testimony at a December, 15, 2015 legislative hearing on teacher issues, including tenure. Evelyn Macias, the mother of a plaintiff in the Vergara lawsuit, went beyond one minute and had her microphone shut off. A Los Angeles judge last year ruled in favor of the plaintiffs in the suit, but an appeals court on April 14, 2016, reversed the decision. Courtesy of the California Channel
