Michigan’s Proposal 2: Supreme Court to Hear Affirmative Action Case
(The Root) — Despite the ongoing government shutdown and employee furloughs, the Supreme Court opened its doors Monday to begin a new term. Many issues of national interest are expected to come up for discussion, including another case on affirmative action. Next Tuesday, the court will hear arguments in the case of Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action. The justices will ultimately have to decide whether Michigan violated the Equal Protection Clause by banning affirmative action in its constitution.
