Supreme Court of the Slovak Republic: lower courts erred in dismissing an anti-discrimination lawsuit against state institutions in a case of alleged segregation of Roma children at a primary school in a village Terňa
The Supreme Court of the Slovak Republic upheld our appeal in a publicized court case concerning the alleged segregation of Roma children at a primary school in a village Terňa. In its resolution, it overturned the judgments of the lower courts and remanded the case back to the District Court in Prešov for further proceedings. Unlike the lower courts, the Supreme Court concluded that we had carried our part of the burden of proof in the proceedings. It is now up to the defendant state institutions to prove that they did not discriminate in their decisions to set school districts.
