SCOTUS Revisits Affirmative Action

It has been nine years since the Court handled its last major affirmative action case: Grutter v. Bollinger in 2003, but today the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Fisher v. University of Texas.  Fisher is an affirmative action case that examines whether the Court's decisions interpreting the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, including Grutter v. Bollinger, 539 U.S. 306 (2003), permit the University of Texas at Austin's use of race in undergraduate admissions decisions.
