MALDEF/Mendoza Plaintiffs File Response to Deseg Objections

Posted By on Fri, Dec 14, 2012 at 4:58 PM

Today is the U.S. District Court deadline for all Tucson Unified School District desegregation case parties to file briefs in response to objections filed by the different parties involved: TUSD, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund representing the Mendoza Plaintiffs, Ruben Salter representing the Fisher plaintiffs, and the U.S. Department of Justice.

In response to the objection filed by TUSD attorneys in November against cultural relevant curriculum being returned to TUSD as core classes for history and literature, MALDEF attorneys filed a 24-page response today with five exhibits in support.

You care read them below, but before you get started, here's a bit of MALDEF brilliance from their preliminary statement:

"It is unfortunate that the District elected to commence its memorandum to the Court with assertions that it neither "acknowledge(s) nor admit(s) that vetigages of the segregated system remain in the District" and "does not acknowledge or agree that the obligations it is undertaking pursuant to the ... USP are necessary or required to achieve unitary status."

Yeah, it is unfortunate.
