Everett v. Pitt County Board of Education, 13-2312

In an appeal arising from two desegregation orders entered in 1970, which were administratively closed and lay dormant for over thirty-five years, an action to enjoin the implementation of the Board's 2011-12 student assignment plan alleging it failed to move the school district toward unitary status, the district court's dismissal of the request for injunction as moot is affirmed where: 1) the district court acted within its discretion in choosing to address the Board's motion for declaration of unitary status before ruling on plaintiffs' motion for injunctive relief; and 2) the court did not clearly err in determining that the school district is unitary.
