East Carroll Parish Sch. Bd. v. Marshall, 424 U.S. 636 (1976)

East Carroll Parish School Board v. Marshall

No. 73-861

Argued January 21, 1976

Decided March 8, 1976

424 U.S. 636


In adopting a multimember reapportionment plan for a Louisiana parish calling for the at-large election of certain parish officials to remedy malapportionment among the parish wards, the District Court, in the absence of special circumstances dictating the use of such a multimember arrangement, abused its discretion in not initially ordering a single member reapportionment plan.

485 F.2d 1297, affirmed.
