With the help of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Loewen and Sallis, joined by a dozen other plaintiffs, sued the state in federal court. Loewen v. Turnipseed sought to force approval of the textbook. Attorneys Melvyn Leventhal and later Frank Parker with the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law fought the case for four years through endless delays, depositions, motions, and negotiations. Peter Stockett represented the state in Judge Orma R. Smith’s court.
