A Supreme Court decision that gives schools the right to sue high school athletic associations for violating a member's civil rights will not affect California because schools here already have that right, according to two commissioners in the California Interscholastic Federation.

Some county high schools had their wishes granted when a final league realignment plan for the 2002-06 cycle was approved during a meeting of principals from Orange County high schools Thursday at Fountain Valley High.

The Streak may come to an end after all. Principals from 63 Orange County high schools are scheduled to vote Thursday at Fountain Valley High on several league realignment plans for the 2002-06 cycle. Principals will vote on a list of 10 realignment proposals, narrowing the field to three. They will then vote again on only those three proposals. The top vote-getter, if it receives two-thirds of the principals' 63 votes, will be submitted to the Southern Section office for final approval.
