Franczek Radelet Attorneys Prepare Amicus Brief in Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action

NSBA's Legal Clips
September 10, 2013

Franczek Radelet attorneys Patricia Whitten, Jennifer Smith, and Jackie Wernz were mentioned in a Legal Clips article discussing the amicus brief filed by the National School Boards Association (NSBA) in Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action.  The attorneys prepared the “friend of the court” brief that addresses the significant detrimental impacts of state provisions prohibiting the use of race in public education on public school districts. The brief also urges the Court to consider those detrimental effects in ruling on the constitutionality of one such provision, a constitutional provision from Michigan that will be reviewed by the Court this term. The NSBA brief was joined by the American Association of School Administrators, the Horace Mann League, and the National Association of Elementary School Principals.  Franczek Radelet LEADS fellow Kent Sparks also assisted in the preparation of the amicus brief.
