The Supreme Court recently announced the addition of Schuette v. Coalition to its growing list of affirmative action cases.
Schuette v. Coalition developed in response to a Michigan state law prohibiting the inclusion of race as a factor in the college admissions process, The New York Times stated. The United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in Cincinnati deemed the law unconstitutional due to its incompliance with the equal protection clause. The Supreme Court will decide whether to uphold or reject the ruling.
