I just read through Gutman's book, the Supreme Court decisions, as well as
my own now declining memory related to the case - and all reach a
conclusion the opposite of yours. That is, if I am correct in my
interpretation of all three - they supported the use of Test 21. So Test 21
was not struck down, it was specifically found to be valid. From the SC

   2. Statutory standards similar to those obtaining under Title VII were
   also satisfied here. The District Court's conclusion that Test 21 was
   directly related to the requirements of the police training program and
   that a positive relationship between the test and that program was
   sufficient to validate the test (wholly aside from its possible
   relationship to actual performance as a police officer) is fully supported
   on the record in this case, and no remand to establish further validation
   is appropriate. Pp. 248-252.
