Lawyer Moves to Add SC State as Defendant in Higher Ed Suit

CHARLESTON, S.C. β€” An attorney who has sued alleging that the state of South Carolina still operates a segregated system of higher education wants a federal court to add South Carolina State University as a defendant in the case.

Current and former South Carolina State students sued both the state and the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education in February, saying duplication of S.C. State programs at other public universities has hurt enrollment and finances at the Orangeburg university.

The suit alleges that, if White students can receive the courses elsewhere, they are not likely to attend the state’s only historically Black public university.

Orangeburg attorney Glenn Walters has now asked to amend his complaint adding the university as a defendant.
