a continuance stating that if the hearing proceeded his client would be denied due process Jordon received two reports per taining to the steer in question in May On June 23 he sent a letter to the legal counsel for the district requesting an opportunity to inspect the animal He received a response that stated the animals carcass was at Texas University undergoing tests The response also stated that Jordon would receive a copy of all test results and reports prior to any hearing on Slovers possible termination Neither legal counsel had a copy of the report for Mondays hearing How ever Jordon said he had not prepared a case based on the May reports because they were considered prelim inary and the autopsy would have been the final document used When he dis covered there would not be an
