On August 10 at 2:00 p.m., a federal court will hold a major hearing to consider the State’s motion to dismiss Gary B. v. Snyder, a lawsuit brought by Detroit students to vindicate their right of access to literacy.  At this hearing, Plaintiffs’ counsel will advance their argument for the first time in this case that the U.S. Constitution prohibits excluding a select group of students from Michigan’s statewide system of education by denying them the means to attain basic education.  The hearing is before Judge Stephen Murphy of the Eastern District of Michigan.

August 10th at 2:00 p.m. 
Theodore Levin U.S. Courthouse / Courtroom 228
231 W. Lafayette Blvd,
Detroit, MI 48226

The hearing is public; all who are affected by or interested in the issues raised by the lawsuit are invited to attend.  We encourage those attending in person to wear attire appropriate for the courtroom: business causal or church clothes.
