Court sides with Michigan Racist and Gender inequality advocates in college admissions


(Reuters) – A federal appeals court on Friday struck down a Michigan law that banned affirmative action in college admissions, creating the possibility of a Supreme Court battle.

The 6th U.S. Circuit of Appeals, in a 2-1 decision, found that Proposal 2, a 2006 amendment to the Michigan constitution, “unconstitutionally alters Michigan’s political structure by impermissibly burdening racial minorities.”

The Michigan Attorney General’s office was not immediately available for comment. It is possible the office could ask the entire 6th Circuit to review the case.

Appellate Court Judge R. Guy Cole wrote in the majority decision that the U.S. Supreme Court has twice held that the equal protection clause in the U.S. Constitution does not permit the kind of political restructuring caused by the Michigan law.
