Indiana scheduling case moving forward

The case brought by former basketball coach Amber Parker, on behalf of her daughters, against the Indiana High School Athletic Association and Franklin County schools is moving forward. A federal district court decided the case would proceed to trial. But the defendants are still waiting on a motion they filed that argues the case violates the 11th amendment. [I'm pretty sure that's not going to work out for them, but I am not the legal expert.]

Last we had heard about the case, Parker was looking for a lawyer. She appears to have found one and is set to make the IHSAA take responsibility for their history of discriminatory scheduling.
