ATLANTA -- Court hearings into the Atlanta Public Schools cheating scandal continued Monday.
Former state attorney general Mike Bowers is expected to speak. Bower is one of three special investigators appointed by then-Governor Sonny Perdue to investigate APS. The investigators' 400-page report formed the basis for the criminal investigation.

Defense attorneys for the 35 indicted educators say the governor illegally appointed the special investigators. Prosecutors disagree, arguing the case is unique and in that context, it's perfectly logical for the governor to appoint special prosecutors to investigate the case.
