Maryland officials and lawyers for the state's public historically black colleges have agreed to mediation on what to do about a federal judge's ruling that the state has discriminated against the colleges by permitting duplicative programs to be set up at nearby predominantly white institutions, the Associated Press reported. The judge in last month's ruling suggested that the state and the colleges would be well served by mediation, as opposed to the judge outlining a full plan for dealing with the discrimination.
