The First District Court of Appeal on Friday issued a stay blocking the back-to-work order for fired San Francisco elections director Tammy Haygood. Under an order issued last Tuesday by San Francisco Superior Court Judge James McBride, Haygood had been scheduled for reinstatement on Friday at 5 p.m. Instead, an order signed by acting Presiding Justice Paul Haerle gives Haygood’s attorney 10 days to file opposition papers to a petition seeking to overturn McBride’s reinstatement. The First District further served notice that it was considering the issuance of a Palma writ — essentially a summary decision without oral argument. The flurry of court orders was the latest chapter in the city Elections Commission’s efforts to keep Haygood from reclaiming her job. Commissioners fired Haygood on April 22, but gave no reason, saying she was a probationary employee and not eligible for a hearing with formal charges. The appellate court’s stay gives Haygood an opportunity to file a response to the petition. Justices James Lambden and Ignazio Ruvolo are expected to join Haerle on the appellate panel.
