Bustop v. Superior Court

California Court of Appeal
69 Cal. App. 3d 66 (1977)


In 1976, the California Supreme Court decided Crawford v. Board of Education, 551 P.2d 28 (1976), which ordered the Los Angeles Unified School District to form a plan that would racially integrate students within the school system. Over the course of the next fourteen years, the political process took place and a plan was eventually formed that would, among other things, require some students attend schools not within their geographic district so as to ensure racial integration. The school district eventually submitted the plan to the original trial court for approval. During this stage, Bustop, a non-profit advocacy group opposing the suggested movement of students to new schools, moved to intervene in the action, arguing that the Crawford decision did not require the kind of mandatory bussing of students that the plan eventually mandated. The trial court denied Bustop’s motion. Bustop appealed.
