Appeal in Indiana scheduling case

A summary judgment issued by a federal judge in Indianapolis is being appealed by the plaintiffs in the scheduling of girls' basketball games in Frankling County, Indiana. This is the case started by former coach Amber Parker (who has since moved out of the state). Last year the judge ruled that the schools (and IHSAA, since dropped from the lawsuit) were not in violation of Title IX. Erin noted some of the issues with the judge's rationale when the decision was released and it seems her hopes for an appeal have been realized.
The appeal will be heard by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago.
