SCOTUS to Hear UT Affirmative Action Case in October

Jul 25, 2012

The U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear arguments in October in a case challenging the use of affirmative action at the University of Texas at Austin.

Abigail Fisher filed a lawsuit against UT-Austin in 2008. She says she wasn’t admitted to the university because she’s white.

The Supreme Court will hear the case October 10.

In 2003, the court upheld the University of Michigan’s use of race as a factor in admissions.
