Annotate this Case
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit - 208 F.3d 1313 (11th Cir. 2000) April 14, 2000

Appeal from the United States District Court for the Southern District of Georgia.

Before TJOFLAT and MARCUS, Circuit Judges, and KRAVITCH, Senior Circuit Judge.


Appellants brought related challenges to the University of Georgia's use of race in its admissions process and to the maintenanceof historically black colleges within the state's university system. The district court granted summary judgment to appellees on all but one claim on standing and mootness grounds. After the appeal was filed in this case, the Supreme Court in the case of Texas v. Lesage, --- U.S. ----, 120 S. Ct. 467, 145 L. Ed. 2d 347 (1999), clarified the standing requirements for plaintiffs challenging race-based admissions policies. It is therefore ORDERED that the judgment of the district court is VACATED and the case is REMANDED to that court for further consideration in light of Lesage.
