Loevy + Loevy secures settlement and desegregation plan for Black-owned Mississippi mortuaries

Loevy + Loevy represented six Black-owned mortuaries in Gulfport, Mississippi in a lawsuit against the public coroner, who discriminated against them in favor of two white owned mortuaries in the county. The case settled during the middle of the trial after the cross examination of the coroner, with an agreement to implement a desegregation plan (a rotation system) among all eight mortuaries in Gulfport. No, this was not in 1955 or 1965; it was desegregation implemented in 2018.
