Brentwood Academy v. Tennessee Secondary Schools Athletic Association

Overview

On May 22, 2000, the Institute filed an amicus brief in a pending case before the U.S. Supreme Court, on the critical question of state action under the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The Institute's brief focuses on the U.S. Supreme Court's earlier state action rulings in the white primary cases, rulings which provide key precedent for the Institute's constitutional challenge to the wealth primary process.
