In the Vassilev case, Judge Cynthia Kern wrote that they must make a decision but they dont have to give it to Mr. Vassilev:
" In the present case, petitioner is entitled to the relief he seeks as the Chancellor's Committee's issuance of a final determination is a ministerial, not a discretionary, act. The Committee's hearing was held in March 2012 yet no final determination has been made thus far. This court is not advising the Committee on what decision to render but only that the Committee must issue a final determination regarding petitioner's "U-rating" for the 2009-2010 school year as expeditiously as possible.
