A. Croson, and of the Georgia Supreme Court in American Subcontractors Association v. 14 During the 1980s dozens of cities followed Atlanta’s lead. 15 But the Croson Decision altered this. Following this case, minority business programs across the country were sued. Many were forced out of existence, while others were modified significantly.
