Case Detail


Alexander v. Sandoval
On November 13, 2000, WLF filed a brief in the U.S. Supreme Court, asking the Court to overturn a ruling that the State of Alabama had violated federal civil rights laws even though it never intended to discriminate against any protected class of citizens. WLF argued that, contrary to the lower court's ruling, claims brought under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 are untenable in the absence of evidence that the defendant intended to discriminate. The lower court held that the policy violated Title VI even though Alabama had no discriminatory intent. On April 24, 2001, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a ruling that the State of Alabama had violated federal civil rights laws even though it never intended to discriminate against any protected class of citizens.
Case Status:
