The February Conference with the Judge: What Was Said

Last February 20, a conference was held in U.S. District Judge Madeline Haikala’s courtroom. Haikala (pronounced High‘-ku-luh) led lawyers from the Jefferson County School District, the Hoover City School District, the U.S. Department of Justice, and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund through a discussion of the Joint Report to the Court filed on February 6.

This is the transcript of that conference.

It clearly lays out concerns of all of the parties.

It is partly old news, but it has implicationsĀ as Hoover’s communities consider where their children will attend school for the 2016-2017 school year.
