It wants V-M-I to quit taking applications from men, if it won't immediately start processing applications from women.

The Board has been meeting since mid-July, trying to fashion a plan to accomodate women ...with "minimal" changes to the Institute.
Since the Supreme Court sided against V-M-I- -54 women have contacted V-M-I expressing an interest in attending the school.
They've been told V-M-I is studying alternatives.
In the motion filed yesterday, the government says: "after more than six years of litigation" V-M-I continues "doing business as usual, fully serving the interests of men but refusing to even send applications to women."
