3 More Women To Fight Citadel

Compiled From Wire Services
 

Three more South Carolina women want to join the legal challenge to The Citadel’s all-male admissions policy, according to lawyers for Shannon Faulkner, the 20-year-old who dropped out of the institution last week after attending only one day.

The lawyers said they expect to file papers in U.S. District Court this week on behalf of at least one of the women. They hope to have several plaintiffs so the women can lend each other moral support in court and - if they win - on campus, said attorney Robert R. Black.
