AFFIRMATIVE ACTION
(2007-08-29)
(wgvu) - A FEDERAL APPEALS COURT HAS REJECTED A
CHALLENGE TO LETTING MICHIGAN VOTERS DECIDE AN ANTI-AFFIRMATIVE
ACTION BALLOT PROPOSAL LAST NOVEMBER, RULING THAT THE ISSUE IS
MOOT.
THE 6TH U.S. CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS IN CINCINNATI DENIED THE
APPEAL BY OPPONENTS OF THE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT DESPITE
AGREEING THAT THE MEASURE GOT ON THE BALLOT THROUGH FRAUD AND
DECEPTION.
THE THREE-JUDGE PANEL, HOWEVER, SAYS THE CHANCE TO KEEP PROPOSAL
TWO OFF THE BALLOT "HAS LONG SINCE PASSED."
THE MEASURE, WHICH WAS APPROVED BY VOTERS, BANS PREFERENTIAL
TREATMENT BASED ON RACE AND GENDER AT PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES IN
MICHIGAN.
OTHER LAWSUITS CHALLENGING ALL OR PARTS OF PROPOSAL TWO CONTINUE
IN FEDERAL COURTS.
