The city of Asheville, N.C., has found itself on defense, in a federal courtroom, for requiring that members of a city commission be of certain races.

Officials with the Pacific Legal Foundation have filed a complaint in U.S. District Court in Asheville on behalf of John P. Miall and several others against the city, its manager, and its mayor.

The issue is over the procedures used to accept applicants to be on the city's Human Relations Commission.

The problem is if an applicant isn't the right race, he or she isn't even considered.

The complaint charges that violates the Constitution's equal protection clause.
