Series 11. Addenda (accessions received 1996-2002) circa 1969-2000

Scope and Contents

This series contains addenda to Record Group 5 received between 1996 and 2002. The series includes dockets, pleadings, briefs, transcripts, research and discovery files, case notes, memos, and correspondence from legal cases, either argued by MALDEF attorneys or of interest to MALDEF. Also included are more general files related to advocacy areas, such as education and immigration, as well as files related to specific Legal Department initiatives, such as the Chicana Rights Project.

Case Summaries

Listed below are summaries for a selection of significant MALDEF cases. For additional MALDEF case summaries, refer to MALDEF's published dockets included in the collection.
Adams v. Bell (Adams v. Richardson) (1973-1983); District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals, Nos. 73-1273, 81-1715
Five years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (HEW) took steps to enforce non-discrimination in higher education. North Carolina was one of ten states that failed to comply with Title VI. Although HEW sent letters to North Carolina demanding that the state desegregate its system of higher education within 120 days, when North Carolina ignored the request, HEW took no further action and was subsequently sued by the Adams plaintiffs. In 1973, the District Court for the District of Columbia ruled in favor of the plaintiffs and ordered HEW to institute administrative enforcement proceedings in ten recalcitrant states including North Carolina. On appeal, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals not only affirmed this decision, but also declared that HEW was under order to submit to the states specific requirements for desegregating state-wide systems of higher learning. The case grew rapidly after 1977 as new groups of plaintiffs representing women, disabled persons, and various ethnic communities (including a group of Mexican-Americans represented by MALDEF) intervened to seek enforcement of numerous federal anti-discrimination statutes. Over the next decade, these plaintiffs litigated extensively over the complaint and compliance review mechanisms used by various federal agencies to enforce those anti-discrimination laws. Eventually, in 1987, the trial court declared that many of the student, employee, and representative organizations lacked standing to proceed, but that decision was overturned by future Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, then a judge on the D.C. Court of Appeals.
Published Opinion(s): 356 F. Supp. 92 (D.D.C. 1973) (as Adams v. Richardson); 480 F.2d 1159 (D.C. Cir. 1973) (as Adams v. Richardson); 391 F. Supp. 269 (D.D.C. 1975 (as Adams v. Weinberger); 430 F. Supp. 118 (D.D.C. 1977) (as Adams v. Califano); 711 F.2d 1161 (D.C. Cir. 1983); 675 F. Supp. 668 (D.C. Cir. 1987) (as Adams v.Bennett).
Alonzo v. Jones (Alonzo v. City of Corpus Christi ) (1981-1995); Southern District of Texas, No. 81-227; Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 94-60526
In Alonzo I (1983), Hispanic citizens of Corpus Christi, Texas challenged the city’s at-large city council election method. Plaintiffs charged that this system was discriminatory against Mexican Americans. The court ruled in favor of the plaintiffs and issued a consent decree ordering the city to institute a 5-3-1 electoral system, in which five members of the council are elected from single-member districts, while three members and the Mayor are elected at-large.
In Alonzo v. City of Corpus Christi (1991), plaintiffs challenged the apportionment of the single member districts and composition of the 5-3-1 electoral system. The Fifth Circuit affirmed again that the 5-3-1 plan did not discriminate against Mexican Americans.
Published Opinion(s): 68 F.3d 944 (5th Cir. 1995) (as Alonzo v. City of Corpus Christi)
Angel R. Cabiya San Miguel v. United States Veterans Administration (1984-1985) District of Puerto Rico, No. 84-0025; First Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 84-1903
Plaintiff Angel R. Cabiya brought action against the United States Veterans Administration, seeking retroactive payment of veterans' benefits. The defense countered by claiming that the district court lacked jurisdiction to review VA administrative action. Indeed, 38 U.S.C.A. § 211(a) established that the VA was essentially an autonomous agency and that, on matters of providing benefits, no other official or any court of the United States had the jurisdiction to review any such decision. In Johnson v. Robinson, the Supreme Court upheld the validity of the VA's policy and was further affirmed by the U.S. District Court in Angel. The case was summarily dismissed. Published Opinion(s): 592 F. Supp.21 (D.P.R. 1984)
Aranda v. J.B. Van Sickle (1976-1980); Central District of California, 74-551; Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 77-2714
The plaintiffs brought a class action suit on behalf of all Mexican-Americans in San Fernando Valley, California against members of the city council. MALDEF provided legal counsel during the life of the case. The plaintiffs argued that the at-large election scheme, while not unconstitutional, per se, diluted the voting strength of Mexican-Americans. Although the plaintiffs cited a long history of racial discrimination, extreme racial polarization, and discriminatory campaign, the United States District Court ruled in favor of the defendants. The plaintiffs, the Court found, failed to provide enough facts to support their claim that San Fernando's at-large governmental plan diluted the voting power of its Mexican American citizens as a class.
Published Opinion(s): 455 F. Supp. 625 (C.D. Cal. 1976); 600 F.2d 1267 (9th Cir. 1979)
Arvizu v. Waco Independent School District (ISD) (1973-1989); Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 73-3080.
A case was filed in 1973 on behalf of minority children in Waco, TX regarding desegregation practices and planning. In 1983 Waco Independent School District's plan to consolidate and close an integrated high-school that was located in a predominately Mexican-American neighborhood was modified with MALDEF's urging and a court-approved settlement agreement. The district eventually agreed to keep the school in service. In 1989 the district was determined to be unitary. MALDEF did not agree, but did not appeal the decision. However MALDEF did eventually receive an attorneys' fees settlement in the fifth circuit court for their monitoring efforts.
Arzola v. H.E. Butt Co. (1983-1988); Texas Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 87-5594; Western District Court of Texas, No. SA-83-CA-1148
The employment opportunities class action case was brought against H.E. Butt Company, a large Supermarket chain in the San Antonio, TX area, in 1983. The suit alleged that the company's employment and advancement practices were discriminatory against Hispanics. In 1986 a settlement was reached, in favor of the plaintiffs, whereby an affirmative action plan was adopted, and Hispanics would gain proportional employment opportunities for supervisory positions. The settlement also included a scholarship fund and discrimination prevention classes. MALDEF also agreed to supervise the settlement terms' enactment and enforcement for 5 years. The suit was also heard by the United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals where the original terms of the settlement were upheld.
Published Opinion(s): 853 F.2d 924
Barefield v. Chevron, USA (1986-1988); Northern District of California, No. 86-2427 In 1986, a class of African American and Hispanic employees filed suit against the Chevron facility in San Joaquin Valley, California. The plaintiffs alleged that Chevron discriminated against African American and Hispanic workers with respect to training, job assignments, and promotional opportunities. These forms of employment discrimination, the plaintiffs argued, violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act. The plaintiffs’ legal team included lawyers from NAACP Legal Defense Fund and MALDEF, including Bill Lann Lee (NAACP LDF), Antonia Hernandez, E. Richard Larson, and Manuel Romero.
In June 1991, the case was settled by Consent Decree. A compensatory damages fund was established for emotional distress which also included an opt-out clause. However, when three of the original plaintiffs opted out of the fund, these three plaintiffs each brought individual claims against Chevron. In 1997, the Court ruled in favor of two of the three plaintiffs.

Benavidez v. Eu ; Ninth Circuit, Northern District of California, No. C-91-3383; United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit, No. 92-16260.
(See also: Wilson v. Eu) In the fall of 1991 members of California's Congress filed a federal lawsuit seeking congressional redistricting by the federal court. They filed a preliminary injunction halting the redistricting plan decision by the state Supreme Court because it was believed that the state court could not adopt a constitutional plan in time for the dead-line that was necessary for the upcoming primary. A three-judge federal District Court was convened, and then stayed, pending the recommendations of the Special Masters who were assigned to devise a plan for redistricting. When the Special Masters submitted their recommendations the three-judge federal District Court established a briefing and argument schedule that paralleled the state Supreme Court. In response, MALDEF filed a complaint-in-intervention, a motion for a preliminary injunction, and evidence in legal briefs in support thereof. MALDEF presented oral arguments in January 1992. The three-judge federal District Court declined to rule stating merit and timeliness issues. MALDEF, not satisfied with this decision, prepared for a full trial but the three-judge District Court issued a two-to-one decision dismissing all claims, including MALDEFs claims under the Voting Rights Act, and grounds of abstention. In June 1992, MALDEF responded by filing a motion to alter or amend the judgment which was denied. MALDEF filed multiple appeals, and in September 1994 the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the prior decision.
Published Opinion(s): (Members of the California Democratic Congressional Delegation v. Eu); Ninth Circuit, Northern District of California, 790 F. Supp. 925 (N.D. Cal. 1992); 34 F.3d 825 (1994); 34 F.3d 825; 29 Fed.R.Serv.3d 1225
Bradford v. University of California (Regents of the University of California v. The Superior Court of Los Angeles County) (19XX-1991) ; Los Angeles County Superior Court, No. C 607748; Court of Appeal, Second District, Division 2, No. B 051229
In Bradford v. University of California, terminated university employee David Bradford sued the University of California, Los Angeles asking that the university treat all undocumented students as nonresidents for tuition purposes. The Superior Court of Los Angeles ruled in favor of Bradford, on the grounds that a 1985 opinion by the state Attorney General precluded undocumented students from receiving reduced in-state tuition. The University appealed, arguing that the Bradford decision deprived undocumented alien students of the equal protection of the law, but the Court of Appeal disagreed and upheld the trial court’s decision. Some state-operated universities provided tuition and fee reductions to residents with "in-state" status. Thus, the central question in Regents of California v. Superior Court revolved around whether "undocumented aliens" can be classified as residents to qualify for lower tuition, as stated in the 1983 amended version of the California Education Code and if the decision handed down in Toll v. Moreno (1982) applied also to undocumented alien students.
Published Opinion(s): 276 Cal.Rptr.197 (Cal. Ct. App. 1990) (as Regents of the University of California c. Superior Court of Los Angeles County)
Cano v. Chesser and City of Lockhart v. USA (1979-1983); Western District of Texas, Nos. 79-0032, 82-1616; District of the District of Columbia, No. 80-264; Supreme Court of the United States, No. 81-802
In Cano v. Chesser, plaintiffs targeted Lockhart, Texas' at-large electoral process, specifically the ways in which numbered and staggered posts used to elect city councilman discriminated against minorities. Mexican-Americans argued that this post system violated § 5 of the Voting Rights Act. After the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas granted injunctive relief in March 1979, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia ruled in favor of the plaintiffs, declaring that this electoral process had a "retrogressive effect" on minority voting strength. Shortly thereafter, the United States Supreme Court overruled the District Court decision by concluding that at-large elections using the numbered-post system did not discriminate against minorities. This case, Beer v. United States (1976), among others, were a part of a broader trend in which minority groups challenged the various reapportionment schemes that denied these groups adequate representation at the local, state, and federal levels.
Published Opinion(s): 559 F. Supp. 581 (D.D.C. 1981); 103 S.Ct. 998 (1982)
Castañeda v. Pickard (1978-1986); Southern District of Texas, No. 79-2253; Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 84-2612
Mexican-American plaintiffs argued that the Texas Raymondville Independent School District (RISD) violated the fourteenth amendment, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and Equal Educational Opportunities Act of 1974. Plaintiffs argued that Mexican-American students were discriminated against because of both the absence of an adequate bilingual education program and because the school system instituted an ability "grouping system" for classroom assignments.
Though the grouping system was not unconstitutional in it of itself, the plaintiffs argued that the implementation of this system was racially and ethnically discriminatory and resulted in classroom segregation. Moreover, the plaintiffs argued that the RISD discriminated against Mexican-Americans in the hiring and promotion of teachers and administrators. In August 1978, U.S. District Court for Southern District of Texas ruled in favor of RISD. However, in January 1986, the Appellate Court, while affirming the decision that RISD's Bilingual education program did not violate Title VI, ruled in favor of the plaintiffs that the grouping system and hiring practices were in fact discriminatory against Mexican Americans.
Published Opinion(s): 648 F. 2d 989 (S.D. Texas 1981); 781 F.2d 456 (5th Cir. 1986)
Comite de. Padres de Familia v. Bill Honig, as Superintendent of Public Instruction (19XX - 1987); Court of Appeal, Third District, California, No. C-000258
Plaintiffs brought action against the California State Department of Education (SDE) and State Board of Education (SBE) on the grounds that both bodies violated article four of the California Education Code (1977). The plaintiffs argued that article four required the CSDE to develop, implement, and monitor affirmative action employment programs in local school districts. The California Court of Sacramento County found that the SDE and SBE were not required to monitor these programs. After an appeal, in June of 1987, the Third Circuit District Court of Appeal affirmed this decision. This case was a part of a larger attempt to use legal means to enforce equal employment opportunities.
Published Opinion(s): 192 Cal.App.3d 528 (Cal. Ct. App. 1987)
Communication Workers of America, AFL-CIO v. Contel of California, Inc. (1992); Northern District of California, No. 90-20549
In Communication Workers of America v. Contel, plaintiffs brought an employment discrimination suit against telecommunications company, Contel Inc. of California. The plaintiffs alleged the company instituted unlawful employment practices in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by requiring Hispanic employees to use their Spanish language skills. MALDEF become involved when five Hispanic intervenors joined the case against Contel. Claims by the CWA were resolved once Contel decided to strike the requirement that an employee had to utilize Spanish language skills on the job unless the job vacancy explicitly required an employee to speak Spanish. The United States District Court ordered Decree concluded litigation between the parties. In addition to presenting the plaintiffs, MALDEF monitored the subsequent methodology for Contel's Spanish-language testing for employees.

Cota v. Tucson Police Department, City of Tucson (1991-1992); District of Arizona, No. 85-544
Hispanic employees brought individual and class-wide claims against the Tucson Police Department (TPD) on the grounds that the TPD violated Title VII and the Arizona Civil Rights Act by requiring its Hispanic employees to use Spanish-speaking skills without additional compensation. This requirement, the plaintiffs claimed, was based on the faulty assumption that TBD Hispanic employees were able and willing to speak Spanish. The United States District Court in Arizona ruled in favor of the defendants, declaring that the plaintiffs failed to establish proof of discriminatory treatment on the basis of national origin.

Diana v. State Board of Education (1970-1973); Northern District of California, No. 70-37
MALDEF represented a class of Hispanic school children in a suit against the California State Board of Education, seeking to address the discrepancy in the percentage of Mexican-American children in Educable Mentally Retarded (EMR) classes and the percentage of Mexican-American students in the general population. The parties settled before trial, with the State Department agreeing to investigate any school districts in which a "significant variance" between the expected and actual percentage of Mexican-American students in EMR classes was found, and to thoroughly audit schools in which the variance persisted after three years.
This case, which spoke to concerns over racial discrimination in special education placement, produced several findings regarding the content and format of IQ tests used to place children in EMR classes. Along with Larry P. v. Riles, a similar case involving African-American students, Diana had a profound impact for decades afterward on state and federal laws governing special education.
Doe v. Plyler MALDEF represented a class of undocumented Texas school children in a challenge to a 1975 Texas law that withheld state funds for educating undocumented children and allowed public schools to deny such children enrollment. They filed the case in Tyler, Texas, where the local school district had tried to make up the state funding lost under the new law by imposing a $1000 tuition fee on all undocumented children. The plaintiffs argued that the law violated the Fourteenth Amendment by denying them equal protection of the laws, and that the law deserved strict judicial scrutiny because the children were a politically powerless minority, being deprived of education on the basis of their parents’ misdeeds that they had no ability to control. The state defended the law based on its fiscal savings, and argued that undocumented children were not within the jurisdiction of the Fourteenth Amendment.
The case made it all the way to the United States Supreme Court, the plaintiffs prevailing at each step of the way. It resulted in the landmark 1982 ruling, Plyler v. Doe, in which the Supreme Court held that the Fourteenth Amendment extends both due process and equal protection to undocumented immigrants, and preempts any effort by a state to impose discriminatory laws within its jurisdiction. The court observed that in addition to imposing a “discriminatory burden on the basis of a legal characteristic over which the children can have little control,” the law would also have the deleterious effect of creating and perpetuating a "subclass of illiterates" that would ultimately cost the state much more than it saved by not educating them. This decision has since been interpreted to apply only to K-12 education, not higher education, but is nonetheless one of the most important immigrants’ rights cases ever litigated.
Edgewood v. Kirby (1984-1995)
This set of cases, known collectively as Edgewood v. Kirby I-IV, was important for its exploration of the intricacies of public school funding and educational inequality.
Edgewood I: EDGEWOOD INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT V. KIRBY (1989)
MALDEF filed suit against commissioner of education William Kirby on May 23, 1984 in Travis County on behalf of the Edgewood Independent School District, San Antonio. The plaintiffs initially consisted of 8 school districts and 21 parents, but grew to 67 other school districts and many other individuals. The suit charged that Texas’s methods of funding public schools violated the state constitution, which required the state legislature to provide an efficient and free public school system. Under the state public school financing system at the time, 50% of funding came from property and ad valorem taxes within individual districts, 42% came from the state, and the rest came from other sources, such as federal funds. This, plaintiffs pointed out, put poorer districts in a double bind. Not only did they have to tax at a higher rate than wealthier districts to get enough money to fund their schools, but the high rates scared off potential property owners, leaving schools in these districts underfunded compared to those in districts with higher individual incomes. Attorneys argued that funding education through property taxes was inherently unequal because property values varied widely from district to district, thus denying equal opportunity to education and violating the intent of the state constitution’s Texas Education Clause. The Texas State Legislature passed a school reform measure to increase state aid to public schools in June 1984, but MALDEF did not believe this went far enough to remedy the situation and pursued their case.
The original case was heard in Austin between January 20 and April 8, 1987. Presiding state district judge Harley Clark ruled in favor of the plaintiffs on April 29, 1987. The Texas state legislature was ordered to create a more equitable public school financing structure by September, 1989. This ruling was appealed by the defendants and reversed by Third Court of Appeals December 14, 1988. They ruled that education was not a basic right and that the current funding structure was sufficient. The plaintiffs appealed by to the Texas Supreme Court on July 5, 1989. They found for the plaintiffs and ordered state legislature to reform its funding system by the 1990-91 school year.
Four legislative special sessions failed to produce a solution. A Master appointed by the state Supreme Court came up with a “Robin Hood” plan to redistribute money from wealthier to poorer districts to ensure equality of financing if the legislature failed to come up with a law. This move resulted in a June 6, 1990 funding bill, signed into law.
Edgewood II: EDGEWOOD INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT V. KIRBY (1991)
MALDEF was dissatisfied with the June 6, 1990 funding bill and called for a new hearing in Travis County District Court. In September 1990 Judge Scott McCown agreed with the plaintiffs and ordered legislators to come up with new funding plan within a year. The defendants appealed to the state Supreme Court. It ruled on January 22, 1991, that the new legislation had not fundamentally altered the funding system, in part because it excluded the wealthiest school districts from its funding formula. The court gave the legislature until April 1, 1991 to come up with a new plan, and suggested consolidating the state’s school districts.
The new plan, signed into law April 15, 1991, consolidated 1,058 districts into 188 to ensure equal distribution of public money per student. It created county education districts (CEDs) to levy and collect ad valorem taxes and distribute the proceeds.
Edgewood III: CARROLLTON-FARMERS BRANCH INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT V. EDGEWOOD INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT (1992)
The April 15, 1991 plan was appealed by 57 wealthy school districts. Judge McCown upheld it, but it was declared unconstitutional by the state Supreme Court on January 22, 1992 on the grounds that the new school districts were unlawful taxing units under the state constitution. Though the CEDs themselves were constitutional, the court held that they were creating state taxes, and state taxes had to be approved by the electorate. The CED ad valorem taxes had not been approved by the electorate, and were therefore unconstitutional. The court ordered legislature to come up with a new financing plan by June 1, 1993.
A multi-option plan was proposed by the legislature on May 28, 1993. Each district could equalize funding at $280,000 of property worth per student through one of five methods; if a method was not chosen, the default was transferring one district’s taxable property to the rolls of another.
Edgewood IV: EDGEWOOD INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT V. MENO (1995)
The May 28, 1993 options plan was upheld by Judge McCown but protested by some poorer districts. In January 1995, the Texas Supreme Court ruled that the options plan was constitutional but warned that it could become unconstitutional, and that the state needed to continue to monitor and improve educational opportunities.
Garcia v. Immigration and Naturalization Service (1976-1982); Third Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 81-2944
Plaintiff Elsa Garcia, a native of the Philippines, entered the United States in 1970 as a nonimmigrant visitor. Garcia did not depart after her "temporary" three-year period visa expired. In 1976 the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) issued a final order of deportation, which was affirmed by the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA). Garcia did not appeal the deportation order within six months as required by the Immigration and Nationality Act, and instead appealed from a letter she later received notifying her of her scheduled date of deportation. The Third Circuit dismissed her appeal for want of jurisdiction because the letter itself was not a final order and Garcia missed the window for appealing from the last final order that had been issued.

In 1988, a class of Hispanic plaintiffs filed a voting rights action against Los Angeles County in an attempt to redraw county supervisor districts. District lines reconfigured in 1981, the plaintiffs argued, were gerrymandered boundaries that diluted Hispanic voting strength. The District Court found evidence that while the Board of Supervisors was not guilty of intentional discrimination in redistricting that it undertook in 1959, 1965, and 1975, the 1981 redistricting plan nevertheless kept those prior discriminatory reapportionments in place. The Ninth Circuit affirmed, looking mainly to post-census data clearly demonstrating that the county had violated the amended Voting Rights Act of 1982. That court held that the county must propose a redistricting plan in which one of the five districts would have a Hispanic voting majority.

Gay v. Waiters' and Dairy Lunchmen's Union (1973-1982); Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Nos. 75-2197, 80-4120
In 1973, a class of African Americans waiters brought an employment discrimination suit against the San Francisco Hilton Hotels Corporation, alleging violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The plaintiffs argued that the hotel engaged in discrimination by hiring, promoting, and transferring black males into waiter positions, and that the Dairy Lunchmen's Union had consistently failed to notify African American union members of job openings in the restaurant trade (located within the Hilton Hotels). They sought back pay and broad injunctive relief for the class. The Ninth Circuit overturned a lower court decision denying the class certification, but in 1982 ultimately found that the plaintiffs failed to establish intentional discrimination.

Gonzales v. City of Peoria (1982-1983); District of Arizona, No. 78-618 ; Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 82-5432
In 1982, plaintiffs brought a class action suit against the city of Peoria and its police officers, on behalf of persons of Mexican descent who had citizenship status, resident status, or migrated to Arizona as an agricultural laborer, alleging that the police stopped and arrested persons of Mexican descent without probable clause, based solely on their race and appearance. A precursor to allegations made following the passage of Arizona SB 1070(2010), in this case the plaintiffs declared they were required to produce proof documenting their legal presence in the United States. The District Court, later affirmed by the Court of Appeals, ruled in favor of the defendants on the grounds that the police department acted in good faith.
Rather than demonstrate prima facie discrimination, the plaintiffs instead challenged the authority of the city police to enforce immigration law. The plaintiffs argued that this authority resides with the Immigration of Naturalization Services (INS) in general and the United States Border Patrol in particular. The case thus revolved around the legal question whether city police have the authority under state and federal statutes to make arrests for violations of immigration law.

Idaho Migrant Council v. Board of Education (1979-1985); District of Idaho, No. 79-1068; Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Nos. 79-4660, 84-4003
Idaho Migrant Council, a non-profit working on behalf of Idaho public school students with limited English proficiency, sued the Idaho Department of Education, Board of Education, and Superintendent of Public Instruction, claiming that the state had failed to compel local school districts to comply with the Equal Educational Opportunity Act of 1974. After a lower court granted summary judgment to the state, the Ninth Circuit reversed, holding that state law gave the agencies supervisory power over local schools, and that federal law required the agencies to use that power to ensure those schools were providing equal educational opportunities to students with limited English proficiency. In 1983, the State of Idaho agreed in a consent decree to offer all limited-English students either structured language development or bilingual programs, and MALDEF monitored its implementation.

IMAGE was dismissed from the case shortly after filing, an intentional discrimination claim was dismissed in 1984, and the court dismissed the remaining testing claims after trial in 1985. MALDEF declined to appeal the decision.

International Molders’ and Allied Workers’ Union v. Nelson (1982-1989); Northern District of California, No. 82-1896 RPA; Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, No. 85-2745
A class of Hispanic workers in the San Francisco Bay Area, represented by MALDEF, CRLA, National Lawyers Guild, the ACLU, and the Asian Law Caucus, sued the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) over workplace raids conducted during "Operation Jobs"—a nationwide enforcement effort in which INS used open-ended warrants to search factories, nurseries, and farms and make mass arrests of suspected undocumented workers. These searches occurred in the context of a nation-wide enforcement against undocumented aliens known as the "Protect Jobs" campaign. The plaintiffs claimed that the open-ended warrants and workplace raids violated workers' constitutional rights, and asked that the court to stop the INS from searching employment sites of absent employer consent. The trial court held that the warrants were unconstitutionally vague, and found that INS had instituted a systematic policy and practice of Fourth Amendment violations including unlawful detention, unreasonable force, and discrimination against Hispanics. The United States Court of Appeals affirmed the decision, but concluded that while "probable cause" was required to conduct a search, the plaintiff's request to have the INS identify suspect(s) by name or provide specific information about alleged suspect imposed an impractical burden on the INS that was not required by the Constitution.

A class of Haitian refugees sued the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) over its policy of conducting mass exclusion hearings and detaining over a thousand asylum-seekers without parole during the application process. The case went up to the U.S. Supreme Court twice, once to decide whether the INS had violated the Administrative Procedures Act and the equal protection guarantee of the Fifth Amendment and once to affirm an award to plaintiffs of attorneys' fees. The stringent immigration program was an outgrowth of the 1980 Cuban Migration ("Mariel Boatlift"). MALDEF joined an amicus curiae brief arguing that the decision to detain the refugees prior to admitting them into the country warranted constitutional scrutiny, and that such scrutiny revealed that the detention violated equal protection rights.

Parents of Black and Hispanic students in Denver brought a § 1983 action against the local school district, alleging that the school board’s manipulation of attendance zones and school site selection amounted to deliberate and de facto segregation, and claiming that the district failed to offer equal educational opportunities to minority students. After a trial and multiple appeals to the Tenth Circuit and the Supreme Court, it was held that the district’s policies amounted to intentional, de jure discrimination requiring comprehensive remedial action. The parties submitted proposed desegregation plans shortly thereafter.
In 1974, MALDEF intervened on behalf of the Congress of Hispanic Educators to object to both the plaintiffs’ and the districts’ proposed plans, and to submit a proposed bilingual/bicultural educational plan designed by an expert in Chicano education issues. The court found both of the parties’ plans unacceptable, and instead fashioned its own plan combining elements of each party’s plan with the educational plan put forward by MALDEF. The Tenth Circuit struck several parts of the court’s final plan, and held that the bilingual/bicultural education mandate was beyond the trial court’s authority. Several years later, MALDEF and the CHE submitted a new complaint, arguing that the Tenth Circuit’s plan had failed to provide equal educational opportunity for limited-English proficient students. The trial court agreed and required the school district to remedy that problem as well.
In the mid-1980s, the Denver school district asked the court to find that it had successfully desegregated its schools, and to permanently release it from court supervision. The Court refused, however, citing ongoing compliance problems, lack of cooperation from the board, evidence of resegregation, and lingering deficiencies in schools with high minority populations. MALDEF successfully fought these and other requests for unitary status until 1997, when the court’s jurisdiction over the district was finally terminated.

Latinos for Affirmative Action, a community activist group, filed an administrative complaint regarding widespread underrepresentation and discrimination against Latinos in the San Francisco city workforce. A compliance agreement requiring the city to take affirmative action measures was reached in 1979, which led to an increase in the number of Latino city employees and the eradication of numerous discriminatory employment practices. MALDEF monitored compliance with the agreement until 1984.

MALDEF represented two Chicano workers in their objection to a 1976 settlement of a Title VII class action suit between FMC corporation and an employee plaintiff, which the court then rejected as illegal and inadequate. MALDEF and a number of other new plaintiffs then intervened, and in 1979 reached a new settlement granting job consideration and reconsideration rights to a class of Chicano and Black employees, and obligating FMC to implement standardized promotion, transfer, and affirmative action procedures. MALDEF monitored FMC’s compliance with the consent decree until it expired in 1985.

The immigrants appealed, arguing that Immigration and Naturalization Services should have been barred from introducing evidence obtained through unlawful arrest and detention. The Ninth Circuit agreed but was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court, which held that the arrests were indeed unlawful but that the exclusionary rule did not apply in a civil immigration proceeding.

LULAC v. Clements (1990)
In December 1987, MALDEF filed LULAC v. Clements on behalf of LULAC, nine other organizations, and 21 individuals. The plaintiffs were residents of the Border Region, the area along Texas’s border with Mexico. It is populated predominately by people of Hispanic or Latina/o origin. The lawsuit challenged the constitutionality of Texas's system of higher education, arguing that the system did not allow residents to participate in quality higher education programs or to have access to equal education resources. Plaintiffs pointed out that the border region receives only about 10% of the state’s higher education funds, even though it is home to 20% of the state's population. Also, students in the border region had to travel five times as far as students in non-Border regions to attend a comprehensive university, defined as a public institution offering 20 or more PhD degrees annually in at least one discipline, or 10 or more PhDs in three or more disciplines. The discrepancy in funding and the additional travel burden on students in the border region, according to the plaintiffs, amounted to a violation of the equal rights clause of the Texas Constitution as well as Tex. Civ. Prac. and Rem. Code section 106.001, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of race by an official or employee of the state acting in an official capacity.
The jury found that the Legislature failed to provide equal access to first-class universities and an efficient system of public institutions of higher education to students. It also found that the State could have developed such a system and did not. It did not find, however, that these failures were the result of intentional discrimination.
On January 20, 1992, the presiding judge dismissed the jury's ruling and instead found that the Texas higher education system was in violation of the equal rights clause in the Texas constitution. It did not provide equal rights under the law and had expended less state resources in the Border Region than in other areas of the state.
This finding resulted in an appeal by the defendants to the Texas Supreme Court. In Richards v. LULAC (1993) the Texas Supreme Court reversed the decision and ruled in favor of the appellants. The justices offered three main reasons for their ruling. First, the plaintiffs were not "all potential or actual Mexican American higher education students in Texas but only those" in Border Region, and according to the US Supreme Court in McGowan v. Maryland (1961), equal rights applies to persons, not geographic areas. Also, the court found that higher education is not a right, and that because the educational inequalities in the border region were not the result of de jure segregation, the state was not obliged to remedy it.
Despite the unfavorable results of the appeal for the original plaintiffs, LULAC v. Clements did result in increased funding for border region universities through state legislature's South Texas Border Initiative legislation.

MALDEF intervened as a plaintiff in a school desegregation case against the San Bernardino city school district. In the early 1970s, the trial court had decided that the district was segregated based solely on racial and ethnic percentages. The California Supreme Court had remanded the case on appeal, finding that the districts were indeed segregated but that many qualitative factors besides minority percentages had to be taken into account before an appropriate remedy could be designed. MALDEF intervened shortly thereafter.
Over the next several years, the trial court held extensive evidentiary hearings regarding segregation and racial isolation. Its findings were rejected again in 1982, however, this time by the Court of Appeal, because it had failed to consider the precise questions outlined by the Supreme Court, or follow the Court’s prescribed methods for conducting its inquiry. The trial court judge retired before the case was again remanded.

In 1987 the district court again ruled in favor of the defendants and an additional appeal, in late 1988, was filed and again the court ruled in favor of the defendants stating, the defendants did not intend to discriminate and the majority place system for city council elections did not violate the Voting Rights Act.

Price v. Austin Independent School District (ISD) (1987-1991); Western District of Texas No. A-87-CA-483; Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals No. 90-8154
MALDEF filed a different lawsuit regarding desegregation issues in response to the court's refusal to reopen Overton v. Texas. The plaintiffs alleged that the Austin Independent School District (AISD), by instituting a new student assignment plan, violated the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution by returning to the former segregated system which had been unified in 1983. The district court entered judgment for AISD. The court held that the plaintiffs-appellees in this case failed to prove that AISD was purposefully discriminatory and violated the U.S. Constitution's 14th Amendment, partly because the assignment plans were found to be motivated by legitimate educational goals. Additional appeals brought by the plaintiffs were not successful when the court upheld the original ruling. See also: Overton v. Texas.

Terrazas/Rodriguez v. Clements (1981-1983); Supreme Court of the United States, No. A-786.; Northern District of Texas, Civ. No. 3-81-1946-R, and Civ. A. No. 3-81-1946-R
Originally, this case encompassed challenges by many plaintiffs to the reapportionment plan (the "LRB House plan") for the Texas House of Representatives adopted in 1981 by the Legislative Redistricting Board (the "LRB"). The District Court ruled that the district plan would have to be approved by the Department of Justice, and a temporary plan was put in place, pending the approval of a permanent solution. In 1983, MALDEF, acting as an intervenor on behalf of Hispanic voters in the Dallas area, claimed that the new districts outlined in the House Plan violated Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act as well as the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Ultimately, the higher court decided in favor of the defendants and the 1983 reapportionment plan put forth by the House of Representatives of Texas was upheld.
Toussaint v. McCarthy (1973-1991); Supreme Court of the United States, No. 91-5089 – (opinion: The petition for writ of certiorari was denied); California Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Nos. 87-2910, 89-15613, Nos. 84-2833, 85-1507, Nos. 85-1878, 85-2526; Northern District Court of California, No. C-73-1422 SAW
The prisoner's rights lawsuit challenged the conditions of detention and the solitary confinement practices of four high-security California prisons. In 1976, MALDEF and other plaintiff parties, sued for injunctive relief, which was granted. In 1981 the District Court issued a preliminary injunction against the four prisons requiring improvements to their practices and conditions. In 1981, the Ninth District Court vacated the decision, but in 1983 an expanded preliminary injunction was put in place to protect the prisoners against continued unmonitored punishment practices. The State appealed but the court affirmed the order of the district court's modification of the prior permanent injunction that required a prisoner to be heard by the Criminal Activities Coordinator. The court reversed the district court order's continuing a prison monitor, prohibiting polygraph examinations for prisoner discipline decisions, and requiring a review of segregation decisions every 90 days.
U.S. v. City of San Francisco Fire Dept.; Ninth Circuit, Northern District of California, No. C-84-1100-MPH; 890 F.2d 1438 (9th Cir.); 748 F. Supp. 1416 (N.D. Cal. 1990); 976 F.2d 1536 (9th Cir 1992)
This discrimination case was filed by the Justice Department in 1984 on behalf of black and Hispanic entry-level applicants who alleged the fire department had engaged in unfair hiring practices, and discriminated against minorities in promotions. MALDEF became involved in 1986 as intervenors on behalf of 3 Hispanic plaintiffs who were, along with the other plaintiffs, granted partial summary judgment finding the department was discriminatory. The court also ordered that the department improve and revise its hiring and promotion practices along with requiring strict reporting practices for monitoring. MALDEF later asked the court to impose Rule 11 sanctions on the department when it continued hiring applicants who had taken discriminatory and invalid tests, and won. MALDEF also asked that the department define time-lines and goals for their affirmative action solutions. In 1989, after continued tactical legal exchanges with the union representing the Anglo firefighters, the Ninth Circuit Courts upheld the consent decree stating that their decision was lawful under Title VII and constitutional under the Fourteenth Amendment. In 1990, the defendants' union representatives filed a writ of certiorari which was denied by the Supreme Court. Later that year the district court awarded attorneys' fees to many of the plaintiffs' legal representatives. In 1992, the court upheld its decision again after another appeal by the defendants.
U.S. v. Texas Education Agency (TEA) (U.S. & D.E. Overton v. Texas)(1987-1988); Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, Nos. 87-2576, 87-1635
This case was filed in response to the Western District Court of Texas' decision to reject further intervention by the court into the desegregation process in the Austin Independent School District because the district had reached "unitary" status and the court's consent decree had expired. MALDEF acting as plaintiff-intervenors, on behalf of Austin's Black and Hispanic students, wished to readdress the issue of the court's involvement in the Austin Independent School District's unitary status, believing that the students were still victims of educational discrimination. The court ultimately decided that once the district reached unitary status, the courts no longer had judicial grounds to intervene because they did not believe that purposeful discrimination had occurred and the school district had complied with the desegregation process. Published Opinion(s): 532 F.2d 380
Vasquez v. San Jose Unified School District; Ninth Circuit, Northern District Court of California: No. C-71-2130 RFP (SJ); 633 F.Supp. 808 (1985)
This desegregation case began in 1971 (Diaz v. San Jose Unified School District) when plaintiffs filed a class action on behalf of all Spanish-surnamed students enrolled in the district and their parents alleging the district was operating an unconstitutionally segregated public school system and sought injunctive relief to effect desegregation. After repeated appeals the court ruled in favor of the plaintiffs and the school district was ordered to create a desegregation solution that was operational by 1986. Later, in 1985 the Legal Aid Society of Santa Clara County, along with MALDEF as co-counsel, filed appeals requesting hearings on the remedy. After review, the court ordered a desegregation remedy, monitoring, a drop-out prevention plan, and a bilingual education program. MALDEF monitored the implementation of those court ordered remedies.
Wilson v. Eu; California Supreme Court: S-022835
This redistricting case was filed in 1991 after Governor Wilson vetoed redistricting plans passed by the Legislature. In the fall of 1991 Special Masters were assigned by the California Supreme Court to draw district lines for the legislature, state senate, and 52 congressional districts. MALDEF, through legal briefs and lobbying, sought to maximize the Hispanic voters' power by forming districts around their communities and submitted plans to the Special Masters for consideration. The Special Masters submitted a plan that incorporated many of MALDEFs redistricting plans but MALDEF saw areas of improvement. They proceeded to file an amicus brief in the state Supreme Court, in December of 1991, to have the court consider MALDEFs proposed changes (which were believed to improve the current plan's compliance with the Voting Rights Act). After oral arguments concluded, in January 1992, the Supreme Court decided to adopt the original plan submitted by the Special Masters and declined MALDEF's suggested changes.

Background of case

Pertains to standing and civil rights organizations, particularly African American women’s business enterprises. “A fair reading of the complaint filed below reveals that a group of white contractors in the city of Jacksonville, FL were overtly discriminated against on the basis of their race and the Court of Appeals ruled that they had no standing to sue. This remarkable result follows because the white contractors of the AGC did not point to a ‘specific’ city contract they would have secured but for the minority business enterprise participation program. But the white contractors did not sue for money lost as a result of losing specific contracts; they sued for declaratory relief,” (1992 U.S. Supreme Court brief).
