A New Jersey judge threw out a lawsuit alleging that the Lakewood, N.J., public schools discriminated against non-Jews by providing busing for yeshiva students. Judge Steven Reback recently dismissed a lawsuit by former Lakewood school board member George Osborne, an executive committee member of the local NAACP, who charged that the board’s policy of providing “courtesy busing” for local yeshiva students and for students of other private schools amounted to unconstitutional segregation between public and private schools, Jewish and non-Jewish students, and boys and girls.
