No. 78-1211.

587 F.2d 66 (1978)

Lewis C. BURTON et al., Plaintiffs-Appellants, v. WHITTIER REGIONAL VOCATIONAL TECHNICAL SCHOOL DISTRICT et al., Defendants-Appellees.

United States Court of Appeals, First Circuit.

Decided November 20, 1978.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

David Berman, Medford, Mass., on brief for appellants.

Robert P. Rudolph and Rudolph & Andrews, Georgetown, Mass., on brief for appellees.

Before COFFIN, Chief Judge, CAMPBELL and BOWNES, Circuit Judges.

BOWNES, Circuit Judge.

This case comes to us by way of a motion to dismiss granted by the district court. At issue is whether the system of appointment of members of the Whittier Regional Vocational Technical School District (Whittier District) by the local school committees of its constituent municipalities deprives the residents of Haverhill of equal protection of the law and violates the constitutional mandate of "one person—one vote."
