Cotton v. Scotland Neck City Board of Education

Adam Stein was lead counsel at trial, on appeal, and briefed and argued the case in the U.S. Supreme Court, which ruled that the North Carolina legislature’s creation of a predominantly white Scotland Neck school system in the midst of a majority black county school district, which was in the process of dismantling its dual school system, was an unconstitutional impediment to the disestablishment of the dual school system.
