U.S. Supreme Court

Briggs v. Elliott, 342 U.S. 350 (1952)

Briggs v. Elliott

No. 273

Decided January 28, 1952

342 U.S. 350


The District Court in this case decided that constitutional and statutory provisions of South Carolina requiring separate schools for the white and colored races did not, of themselves, violate the Fourteenth Amendment, but ordered the school officials to proceed at once to furnish equal educational facilities and to report to the court within six months what action had been taken. After an appeal to this Court had been docketed, the required report was filed in the District Court.

Held: in order that this Court may have the benefit of the views of the District Court upon the additional facts brought out in the report, and that the District Court may have the opportunity to take whatever action it may deem appropriate in light of that report, the judgment is vacated and the case is remanded for further proceedings. Pp. 342 U. S. 350-352.

98 F.Supp. 529, judgment vacated and case remanded.
