End to Suit that Forced Suburbs to Help Solve Chicago’s Segregation Problem

In the 1970’s, a Federal judge ruled that the segregation exercised by the Chicago Housing Authority would be solved, in  part, by the suburbs.

The decision, commonly referred to as the Gautreaux housing discrimination case, came to an end this week.

The Chicago Tribune reports on the conclusion of the suit, but does not explain how the Chicago Housing Authority’s desegregation solution included the entire six-county Chicago Metropolitan Area.

Considering the suburbs were not included in the suit, it seemed to me unfair.
