Supreme Court weighs Mich. ban on affirmative action
The Supreme Court will decide Tuesday if a constitutional amendment that requires colorblind admissions to colleges and universities is actually discriminatory itself.
The Michigan voter-approved amendment did away with affirmative action at the University of Michigan as well as other state schools.
The lawyer for the civil rights groups acknowledges it's a tough sell.
People on both side of the issue seem to think the outcome will be a victory for Michigan, but if the court strikes down the amendment, it would imperil similar voter-approved initiatives in the state.
