Institutional Reform Litigation, public interest, racial discrimination, sexual discrimination, community representation
An examination of large scale public interest lawsuits in the 1970s aimed at institutional reform which resulted in the federal courts becoming involved in the administration of governmental agencies. These actions were considered by some to be a new breed of litigation. This article provides some insight into the process that these suits are litigated. Further, the article examines the relief provided in these lawsuits as well as the enforcement issues involved providing that relief was granted.
