Supreme Court Sends Affirmative Action Case Back to a Lower Court

Posted: Updated:

The Supreme Court has sent a Texas case on race-based college admissions back to a lower court.

The decision comes after a 7-1 vote.

Justices determined that an appeals court didn't apply the correct standard in deciding whether the Texas policy violated the U.S. Constitution's guarantee of equal protection by giving preferences to racial minorities in it's admissions process.
