Civil Rights in Transportation Projects
This digest addresses the civil rights issues that arise when public transportation officials plan highways and related projects that allegedly affect minorities or ethnic groups in a discriminatory way, in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. An important element of this discussion is whether transportation officials can be sued individually for alleged violations, and whether alleged violations can be pursued by private lawsuits.
