NOTEWORTHY CASES

1971 |
Swann v. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education

Adam Stein was co-counsel at trial, on appeal, and in the U.S. Supreme Court, where the Court held that extensive busing was an acceptable means for desegregating Charlotte-Mecklenburg schools. The ruling paved the way for busing in school districts across the nation where it was deemed necessary to bring about an end to segregated educational systems.
