Pardon us, Friend, while we indulge in some self-congratulatory navel-gazing. The story “Split Decision," Matt Pulle’s incisive feature for the paper version of Unfair Park about Dallas’ embarrassing scrape with the feds over Preston Hollow Elementary School's deliberate segregation, has been nationally recognized in the lofty annals of legal writing.
Nominated as exemplary legal writing by the Green Bag online law journal, Matt'se not in bad company with the likes of Anthony Lewis, Adam Liptak and Linda Greenhouse of The New York Times, Walter Dellings of Slate and the The New Yorker’s Jeffrey Toobin. Oh, and Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. --Megan Feldman
