"Sweeping lawsuit would create a general mess"

Sounds pretty bad to me.

The case will now return to district court, where plaintiffs will push for a sweeping plan to sort metro-area students — including those in suburban districts and charter schools — into schools on the basis of their skin color. Expect the plan to require massive public funding, essentially end local control and entangle our state’s public schools with the courts for years to come.

It may also compel major shifts in school district and/or school attendance boundaries and result in the race-based busing of tens of thousands of metro-area students.
