An attorney who won a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that rejected the use of race in assigning students to Louisville schools is now seeking fees from the court.
Teddy B. Gordon, of Louisville, is asking U.S. District Judge John Heyburn to award him a yet-to-be determined amount for his work in winning the case.
Gordon took a $1 retainer from the plaintiffs, but says he spent thousands of dollars on expenses and court fees.
The Supreme Court made its ruling in June and the school district has since dropped race in making individual assignments.
The district is trying to come up with another system.
