The U.S. Supreme Court will take a look at Michigan’s ban on affirmative action, it was announced today.

affirmative-actionThe court is already looking at the issue of race in university admissions in case out of Texas. Court watchers say the court could issue a ruling in that case this spring and still hear the Michigan case in the fall, depending on what the ruling is.

Carl Tobias, a professor at the University of Richmond School of Law, said since the justices haven’t ruled yet on the Texas case, the decision Monday could indicate the court is looking to the Michigan case to consider an even broader ruling.

“This could be a much broader ruling if the court were to decide that the (Michigan) ban was constitutional,” Tobias said. If such an admissions policy a ban were found constitutional, he said, “It would change the landscape substantially.”
