Northcross v. Board of Ed. of Memphis City Schools
Annotate this Case
412 U.S. 427 (1973)
U.S. Supreme Court
Northcross v. Board of Ed. of Memphis City Schools, 412 U.S. 427 (1973)
Northcross v. Board of Education of Memphis City Schools
Decided June 4, 1973
412 U.S. 427
Since the Court of Appeals' denial of costs and attorneys' fees under § 718 of the Emergency School Aid Act of 1972 to petitioners, who were successful in litigation aimed at desegregating the public schools of Memphis, Tenn., was without stated reasons, this Court cannot determine whether the proper standard, Newman v. Piggie Park Enterprises, Inc., 390 U. S. 400, was correctly applied.
Certiorari granted; vacated and remanded.
