Griffin v. County School Board, 375 U.S. 391 (1964)

Per curiam opinion.

PER CURIAM.

This case is one of the school segregation cases which we dealt with nearly a decade ago in Brown v. Board of Education, 347 U.S. 483. After remand, numerous opinions were written by the District Court and the Court of Appeals,

In view of the long delay in the case since our decision in the Brown case and the importance of the questions presented, we grant certiorari and put the case down for argument March 30, 1964, on the merits, as we have done in other comparable situations without waiting for final action by the Court of Appeals. See 28 U.S.C. § 1254(1); Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. v. Sawyer, 343 U.S. 579, 584; Wilson v. Girard, 354 U.S. 524, 526.

Certiorari granted.

Per curiam opinion. (Footnotes)
