New Rules of Evidence in School Desegregation Cases before the United States Supreme Court.
This paper explores the attitudes of the Burger Court in school integration cases. It seeks to indicate trends given certain parameters: (1) recent positive decisions in school integration cases, (2) standing to sue and who may sue, (3) opportunities to bring class action suits, (4) tests of evidence used in the case, (5) distinctions by the court in de jure versus de facto segregated school districts, (6) remedies accepted by the court to correct school segregation situations, and (7) other related decisions. The paper concludes that the Burger Court has adopted a decidedly conservative posture in the area of school integration. (Author/LD)
