Securing precedent-setting decision in Title IX case

Manatt litigators secured a precedent-setting decision when Judge James Lorenz of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California ruled in favor of a group of female athletes in a Title IX class action lawsuit against the Sweetwater Union High School District. The judge determined that the school district unfairly favored boys’ sports over girls’ sports at Castle Park High School by giving the boys better athletic facilities, resources and opportunities.
