Represent the Quinault Indian Nation against four school districts, and their superintendents and athletic directors, alleging racial discrimination in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Washington State law. The Nation filed the lawsuit as parens patriae on behalf of its tribal member students at the Taholah School District, and their parents, seeking declaratory and injunctive relief for the Taholah student-athletes to allow them equal opportunity to participate in interschool extracurricular athletic activities. The tribal member student-athletes at the predominately tribal school were denied opportunities to play their favorite sports as a result of a decision made by defendant school district’s athletic directors and superintendents to disband the athletic league that included Taholah. Matter pending.
