Description/Abstract: The supreme court granted defendant's motion to dismiss in relation to the plaintiff school districts. The court also dismissed the remaining plaintiffs' equal protection and Title VI claims, but ruled that these remaining plaintiffs had a valid cause of action under the Education Article and Title VI's implementing regulations. The Appellate Division modified the decision and granted the defendant's motion to dismiss all claims. According to the Appellate Division, the plaintiffs' claims had been fully tried and determined by the court in Levittown, and the state had not violated Title VI implementing regulations. The Court of Appeals reversed and held that the non-school district plaintiffs had a valid cause of action under the Education Article and under the implementing regulations of Title VI.
