No high court ruling on affirmative action
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Supreme Court did not issue a ruling on Monday on the hotly anticipated affirmative action case concerning the University of Austin at Texas, although it did issue a ruling in an unrelated case.
The Texas case, on the university's race-conscious admissions policy, was argued in October. The next day the court could issue rulings is on Monday, May 13.
The court is deciding whether the university policy has violated the Constitution's guarantee of equal protection by giving preferences to racial minorities in its admissions process.
