We are pleased that on the eve of Deep Springs’ Centennial Celebration, the California Supreme Court has let stand the lower court ruling in support of the Trustees’ 2011 vote to admit women as students.
We are also very grateful to all of those who have devoted their time, energy, and support to achieve this result. Your steady support has been an inspiration. We greatly appreciate the efforts of the legal team which so ably represented the Trustees and the College, including lawyers and staff from Baker Manock & Jensen, Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer, and Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton.
There are legal loose-ends ahead, and the board, staff, and students of the college will need time to discuss the most deliberate and effective path to our coeducational future. The Trustees of Deep Springs will issue a fuller public statement after the Fourth of July holiday.
