Janeira and Linder Win Keedy Cup Competition 1 - 2

Jennifer Janeira, L’07 and Craig Linder, L’07 won the Keedy Cup last January in a spirited debate about a school desegregation plan in Seattle that was before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Janeira also won Best Oralist. She and Linder competed against Niall O’ Donnell, L’07 and Aretae Ortiz, L’07. The case came before the Supreme Court after a group of parents filed suit against the school district because their children were not, or might not be, assigned to the school of their choice due to a number of factors including race. The parents contended that the school district violated the Equal Protection Clause in its use of what amounted to a racial quota. The school district argued that its plan is constitutional because, among other reasons, it promotes the educational benefits of diverse school enrollment.
