"Huntsville’s schools had been under court order since 1965. Though the district itself is racially balanced, most of the district’s schools are either heavily white or heavily black. A new zoning plan proposed by the board in 2013 would have increased segregation for many black students.

The U.S. Department of Justice, a party to the case, objected to the assignment plan and in February the dispute landed before Haikala, who’d been appointed to the bench by President Obama in 2012."
