The Next Step: Toward Equality of Public Service. Report of the Conference on Public Service Equalization Litigation, May 16-17, 1974, Trinity Parish, New York City.
This Report of the Conference on Public Service Equalization Litigation, held during May 1974, is organized into nine sections. Section One, Public Service Equalization, notes that two major problems that are almost invariably encountered in public service litigation cases are the factual complexity of the cases themselves and the financial limitations of local governments. Section Two, The Current Scene, discusses the activities of such groups as the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Inc., Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the UCLA Institute of Government and Public Affairs, and the American Civil Liberties Union, South Texas project. Sections Three through Nine deal with the educational parallel, legal problems and strategies, inter-governmental remedies, strategic priorities, and an action agenda, respectively. Also included are four appendixes. Appendix A lists Documentary Resources available for Recording and Evaluating Disparities in the Provision of Municipal Facilities. Appendix B is a copy of Court Order in "Hawkins vs. Town of Shaw". Appendix C is a Bibliography on the Evaluation and Delivery of Municipal Services. Appendix D lists Non-legal Organizations active in Public Service Equalization. (JM)
