PLF opposes intervention in Christa McAuliffe PTO v. de Blasio

Washington, D.C.; March 29, 2019: Today, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and the American Civil Liberties Union filed a motion to intervene in Christa McAuliffe PTO v. de Blasio. PLF Senior Attorney Joshua Thompson released the following statement:

“We oppose the intervention of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and the ACLU in Christa McAuliffe PTO v. de Blasio, our challenge to Mayor Bill de Blasio’s blatant attempt at racial balancing. Adding new parties will needlessly delay the litigation, potentially hurting the students who apply to New York’s specialized high schools next year. Instead, we welcome these organizations to add their perspective to the case as friends of the court.”
