Supreme Court upholds Michigan affirmative action ban

By Rebecca Shabad


The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld Michigan’s ban on affirmative action in the college admissions process.

In a 6-2 ruling, the justices said Michigan voters had the right to change their state’s constitution to prohibit public colleges and universities from considering prospective students’ races in admissions decisions.

Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the plurality opinion in the case, Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, and was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito.
