In particular, Intervenors refer (1) to their support on September 16, 1981, of the District's motion to discharge the writ of mandate and (2) their objections to the following language in the Final Order re: Integration, filed May 21, 1985, which is restated on Page 12 in the proposed Amended Final Order, as follows: (restating Paragraph “1983-84 17” sanctioning racial balancing of classes and seats within classes).

Notwithstanding my objections, the stipulation by the other two parties was approved and the Amended Final Order re: Integration was signed, as they proposed, and filed on May 4, 1989. My argument that the “evolving Supreme Court view on affirmative action” would support my objections was bolstered by indications that the high court would soon review appellate extension of court jurisdiction to enforce busing. And later, certiorari was granted to the Oklahoma City school board seeking to overturn an appellate ruling extending court jurisdiction indefinitely. Phase Three
