The article focuses on the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to restrict further the power of federal judges to order widespread busing and school desegregation within a school district. So far this term, the Court has sent back to lower judges cases from Austin, Texas, and Indianapolis, Indiana, with directions that a majority on the Court feel the busing went too far. On the other hand, the Court refused to review the Louisville, Kentucky, case, which also involved metropolitan-wide busing.
