Date set in school desegregation legal battle

Chicot Memorial

A date has been set for the next oral arguments in the long-running school desegregation case in Cleveland. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans will hear arguments on March 11th as to whether a federal judge in Mississippi was incorrect to order Cleveland Schools to adopt a freedom of choice desegregation plan as a remedy for failing to desegregate schools that are predominantly black. The government says that plan will not be effective. The desegregation case dates back to 1965.
