CASE ENTRY

Stout v. Jefferson County Board of Education

Residents of Gardendale, Ala. (who are mostly white) seek to form new school district, which will have the effect of excluding students from surrounding areas (who are mostly black) from the town’s schools. Eleventh Circuit: No new district. The plan falls afoul of a 1971 desegregation order.
