Myers v. Batavia City Board of Education, 13-CV-342S
On April 5, 2013 Empire Justice Center filed a class action suit against Batavia City School District on behalf of three female softball players and their families, alleging wide disparities in treatment between girls’ softball and boys’ baseball. We are proud of the girls and their families for joining the ranks of so many brave Title IX plaintiffs who have stood up for their civil rights and in doing so helped to level the playing field for women in sports.
