Want to guess the outcome?

Another big case for the Supreme Court this session: they’re going to look at a case with . . .

. . .  the potential to undo an accommodation reached in the Supreme Court’s 5-to-4 decision in 2003 in Grutter v. Bollinger: that public colleges and universities could not use a point system to boost minority enrollment but could take race into account in vaguer way to ensure academic diversity.

Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, who wrote the majority opinion in Grutter, said the accommodation was meant to last 25 years.

Kagan has recused herself because her office at the White House was involved with this a few years ago. So that makes for a 5-3 conservative majority, a majority by the way that is entirely Catholic and entirely male (that seems to be the theme of the day, doesn’t it..

Impatient, aren’t they.
