Gilman, Lynch, Cox, Gilman & Goodman Brian Robert, Elder & Good Sweeney City of Louisville v . In a case that blew holes in the 1896 U.S. Supreme Court- established doctrine of "separate but equal" as it pertained to Louisville, three African-American citizens filed an ulti- mately successful suit against the city in 1947 for being denied their rights to, respectively, golf, fish and attend a theater performance in municipal whites-only parks because the city provided no comparable alternative facili- ties for them. Te suit was first dismissed in Jefferson Circuit Court, and then the dismissal was upheld in the state Court of Appeals, on the grounds that — we're not making this up — allowing blacks into recreational facilities set up for whites' enjoyment would infringe on whites' ability to enjoy themselves, that "in this state, the principle of the social separation of the two races has been universally recognized." Eventually a U.S. District Court panel of judges decided in 1951 that to lawfully keep the races socially separate in regard to municipal parks facilities, the city would be required to construct comparable golf courses, fishing lakes and outdoor theaters for African-American citizens, and until their completion, the plaintiffs had the right to use the facilities from which they had been excluded.
