Eagle Forum Files Brief in U.S. Supreme Court in English Language Case
On Nov. 13, 2000, Eagle Forum Education & Legal Defense Fund filed an amicus curiae brief in the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of Alexander v. Sandoval. In this case, the Court will decide whether Alabama may require applicants for a driver's license to pass a test that is administered only in the English language. The Court will review the decision of a federal district judge, Ira DeMent, who ordered Alabama to administer its driver's license test in Spanish. Judge DeMent's order was upheld by the 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.
