Fisher Case (Race-Based College Admissions) Back in Headlines, Post-SCOTUS Decision

August 6, 2014

August 6, 2014 - Southeastern Legal Foundation today submitted an amicus curiae brief in the ongoing race-based admissions litigation, Abigail Noel Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin.  The new amicus brief supports the request for a rehearing en banc by the Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, which earlier this year upheld the race-based admissions program used by the University - despite a clear and decisive decision by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2013 striking down the program as unconstitutional and remanding it back to the Fifth Circuit with instructions to review the program using strict scrutiny, which the high court held was not properly applied in the earlier Fifth Circuit decision.
