Jimmy Andrews et al., Appellant, v. City of Monroe, Louisiana et al., Appellees, 370 F.2d 925 (5th Cir. 1966)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit - 370 F.2d 925 (5th Cir. 1966) December 29, 1966

Alvin J. Bronstein, Jackson, Miss., Stanley E. Tolliver, Cleveland, Ohio, Harris David, New Orleans, La., William T. Keenan, New York City, for appellant.

William F. Pipes, Jr., Albin P. Lassiter, Dist. Atty., Monroe, La., Harold B. Judell, New Orleans, La., for appellees.

Before WISDOM and THORNBERRY, Circuit Judges, and COX,*  District Judge.


The school desegregation plan approved by the district court in this case fails in several important respects to meet the standards established by this Court in United States and Linda Stout v. Jefferson County Board of Education, 372 F.2d 836, decided this day.

The order of the district court is therefore vacated. The case is remanded to the district court for further consideration in light of Jefferson.


William Harold Cox, U. S. District Judge for the Southern District of Mississippi, sitting by designation
