Brown v. Board of Education


No. 8


November 24, 1952
344 U.S. 141

APPEAL FROM THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF KANSAS

Syllabus

This is an appeal from a decision of the District Court sustaining the constitutionality of a state statute which authorized racial segregation in the public schools of Kansas. In the District Court, the State intervened and defended the constitutionality of the statute, but neither the State nor any of the other appellees has entered an appearance or filed a brief here. Because of the importance of the issue, this Court requests that the State present its views at the oral argument. If the State does not desire to appear, the Attorney General of the State is requested to advise this Court whether the State’s default shall be construed as a concession of the invalidity of the statute. Pp. 141-142.

The decision below is reported in 98 F.Supp. 797.
