City of Herriman v. Bell, No. 08-4056

By FindLaw Staff on January 10, 2010 2:14 PM

In an Equal Protection challenge to a Utah statute that allowed cities, through an election open only to residents in the proposed new district, to detach from an existing school district, summary judgment for defendants is affirmed where the electoral scheme furthered, among other things, the state's interests in promoting local control of public school districts by extending the franchise only to those voters who would reside in the new district.
