On Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action
, the latest case on affirmative action. This came just a few months after the Court published its decision in Fisher v. University of Texas
. In Fisher
, the question was whether race-conscious admissions policies at a public university were constitutional. The Court in effect said yes, upholding limited affirmative action and allowing the University of Texas to continue its race-conscious admissions policies.
