Supreme Court sends affirmative action case back to lower court
The Supreme Court reached a decision in the affirmative action case, deciding to send it back to a federal appeals court for review. The case was brought by Abigail Fisher, a white woman who applied to the University of Texas in 2008 and was denied. Fisher claimed that her constitutional rights and federal civil rights laws were being violated. SCOTUS Blog’s Tom Goldstein discusses the impact of this ruling.
