• The Leslie Brodie Report Mulls Filing Amicus Curiae Media Brief in Support of Plaintiff Abigail Fisher in Matter of Fisher v. University of Texas seeking to declare affirmative action programs unconstitutional

    Law dean Erwin Chemerinsky of the University of California at Irvine calls the case “potentially momentous.” He counts four likely votes to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Grutter v. Bollinger, which upheld a law school admissions policy that used race as just one factor in the admissions decision. The outcome will probably depend on Justice Anthony M. Kennedy.

    The case is Fisher v. University of Texas. Justice Elena Kagan has recused herself from the case, the New York Times reports.
