LA Times: CA Attorney General @KamalaHarris Urges High Court to Throw Out Michigan Ban on Affirmative Action


Kamala HarrisCalifornia Attorney General Kamala Harris is supporting a constitutional challenge to Michigan’s ban on affirmative Action, reports the LA Times.

She says the ban violates the “equal protection clause” of the constitution.

“California has a particular interest in the outcome of this case because, as in Michigan, its voters amended its Constitution to add language virtually identical to the constitutional provision at issue in this case…. It is particularly important for states with large nonwhite populations to ensure that students of all races have meaningful access to their public colleges and universities” Harris wrote in a friend of  the court brief.

It will be the second straight session the Supreme Court will have taken up the issue of racial preferences in college admissions.

In June, the justices sent Fisher v University of Texas back to the lower court, asking it to review more strictly whether racial preferences are the only way to achieve diversity in higher education.
