Another Barrier to Affirmative Action
Given the direction of the Supreme Court and the political developments at the state level, it appears that Prop 209 will remain in effect for the indefinite future. The Daily Bruin quotes a lawyer for the BAM group - the one that yells at Napolitano at Regents meetings - as saying the decision will not stand. See: http://dailybruin.com/2014/04/22/supreme-court-upholds-michigans-affirmative-action-ban/ What does that mean? You can't appeal a Supreme Court decision. But the lawyer's name is George Washington (I kid you not), so maybe he knows something.
