Race, lawsuit and highschool football coach

According to the story, "Four former students at Greensburg Central Catholic High School and a parent of another student at the Westmoreland County parochial school filed separate racial discrimination lawsuits this week in U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh against the Diocese of Greensburg and the school.

The lawsuits, which allege repeated acts of discrimination against the black students at the school in the Carbon section of Hempfield, seek unspecified damages."

This should be interesting. The suits claim that a high school football coach promised football players the ability to attend a college of their choice during recruiting conversation and then backed off those enticements later on.

Looks like a settlement is in the offing with the football coach dismissed and a new racial discrimination policy put into effect.
