Victory: Asheville (NC) Agrees To Stop Racial Discrimination In Scholarship Program After Lawsuit By Judicial Watch and Legal Insurrection

On October 20, 2021, we reported on a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch and Legal Insurrection Foundation challenging a public school scholarship program in Asheville, NC, that discriminated on the basis of race, as only black students were eligible.


Judicial Watch and Legal Insurrection have settled the lawsuit with the City of Asheville, NC, agreeing that the scholarship program will be restructured to make "first generation" college students eligible, rather than only African-American students.

Nothing can possibly go wrong with a "first generation" claim.
