The government filed a motion in TWO federal courts to force V-M-I to start complying with last June's Supreme Court ruling and start fielding applications from women.
(----------------)

***CONNIE AUDIO ON CART***
SUPER=03-Lexington/File Tape;


V-M-I's male-only admissions policy has remained un-changed since the Supreme Court ruled in June that the state- supported school can no longer exclude women.
Since then the Institute's Board of Visitors has been working on a plan to admit women, but hasn't invited any who've expressed an interest to apply.
"After more than six years of litigation," the government says, VMI continues "doing business as usual, fully serving the interests of men but refusing even to send applications to women...."
A spokesman at V-M-I points out that the Board of Visitors is set to meet next week and unveil it's plan for co-education. But the alumni are also still considering a plan to buy the place and make it a private school.
Superintendent Josiah Bunting called the government's motion "reprehensible and insulting."
