Bustop, Inc. v. Board of Ed. of City of Los Angeles, 439 U.S. 1380 (1978)

Bustop, Inc. v. Board of Education of the City of Los Angeles

No. A-249

Decided September 8, 1978

439 U.S. 1380


Application to stay, pending the filing of a petition for certiorari or an appeal, California Supreme Court's order vacating Court of Appeal's stay against enforcement of trial court's desegregation order for the Los Angeles school system requiring extensive busing of students, is denied. It appears that the California Supreme Court continues to be of the view that the State Constitution requires less of a showing on the part of plaintiffs who seek court-ordered busing than this Court has required of plaintiffs who seek similar relief under the Federal Constitution. Thus, applicant's complaint involves state law, and should be resolved in the state courts. Accordingly, it is unlikely that four Justices of this Court would vote to grant certiorari to review the California Supreme Court's judgment.
