The Women’s Sports Foundation reprints this unanimous opinion by the 4th Circuit with our highlights, which affirms the dismissal of the litigation at the earliest stage of litigation. The case was brought by an anti-Title IX group that was attempting to weaken the law. The appellate panel rejected all the claims by the group, Equity in Athletics Inc.. The court held that the university's actions, when it substantially decreased the size of its athletic department for men and women, were constitutional and conformed with federal law. The court specifically upheld the 1979 3-part test as not being a quota and promulgated improperly. The 4th Circuit noted the unanimity of the law as applied to athletics across the country. The same legal reasoning is now being used to try to Title IX in the high school context, and will likely receive similar treatment.
