Jefferson County Board of Education. Both cases involve challenges to the voluntary efforts of school districts to achieve and maintain diversity in the schools within their districts.

MMTC's 2007 Distinguished Pro Bono Achievement Award will be presented on July 17 at the organization's annual conference. MMTC is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting and preserving equal opportunity and civil rights in the mass media and telecommunications industries.
