Filed in conjuction with the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights to defend the follow - up defense of the decades-old school desegragation plan. Parents of African American students who wanted their children to attend Central High School could not, because the school was already at the upper limit of the 15% - 50% minority enrollment rate. The federal courts ended their supervision of the desegragation plan years ago, but city school officals elected to continue it voluntarily.
