Highlight

An appeal is not moot if the controversy is one of great public interest and involves the authority and power of public officials, or alternatively, if the matter is capable of repetition yet evading review.
A board of county commissioners may not restrict an elected county sheriff's authority to fire an employee hired by the sheriff except through personnel policies that do not usurp or significantly interfere with the sheriff's authority to fire employee's in the sheriff's office.
