NEW HAVEN, Conn. — A group of black Connecticut firefighters hopes to block promotions for white firefighters who won a discrimination case before the U.S. Supreme Court.

The black New Haven firefighters argue in papers filed Monday that they still have a right to challenge the validity of the promotional exam.

The white firefighters sued New Haven after the city threw out results of some 2003 promotion exams when too few minorities did well. The Supreme Court ruled in June in their favor.

The attorney for the white firefighters filed papers in U.S. District Court Friday asking for promotions. Attorneys for New Haven filed similar papers.

But the attorneys for seven black firefighters say there still has been no finding that the promotional tests were valid.
