High Court Case Signals Threat To Affirmative Action

NPR | Oct. 10, 2012 2:31 p.m.

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a major affirmative action case, Fisher v. University of Texas, on Wednesday. Abigail Fisher, who is white, says she was denied admission to the university because of her race. The court ruled as late as 2003 that race may be used as one of many factors in admissions. In taking the Fisher case, the court may be signaling that it is ready to reverse or narrow previous rulings.
