Circuit
court to
decide on
Fisher
Michigan's Proposal
2 initiative to be
reviewed in the fall
By SAM GRINGLAS and

Daily Staff Reporters
WASHINGTON - Nearly eight
months after the U.S. Supreme
Court heard oral arguments
in Fisher v. the University of
Texas, the court ruled Tuesday
that affirmative action remains
permissible in cases where there
are "no workable race-neutral
alternatives" to build campus
diversity.
Initially considered a case
with potential for a landmark
ruling, the justices fell short of
issuing a sweeping affirmation or
elimination of race as a factor in
college admissions.
The justices have sent the case
back to the Fifth Circuit Court,
the lower federal appeals court,
for review. The majority opinion,
ruled 7 to 1, argued that the
lower court failed to prove the
University of Texas exhausted
all other race-neutral options in
creating a diverse class.
