The circuit court of appeals in Boston heard a lawsuit filed by Students for Fair Admissions, a group opposed to the use of race in admission decisions
A federal appeals court has quashed the claims made by an anti-affirmative-action group against Harvard University of international discrimination against Asian American candidates. The court upheld that the university is not involved in any discrimination in the admission process.
The circuit court of appeals in Boston heard a lawsuit filed by Students for Fair Admissions, a group opposed to the use of race in admission decisions. The group claimed that the Ivy League university was imposing a racial penalty on Asian American candidates and that the admission officers at Harvard use a subjective personal rating during the admission process for the Asian Americans.
Harvard University has denied all the allegations, saying it uses race to a certain limit adhering to the Supreme Court rulings. The action group has decided to move the Supreme Court for a possible review of the case.
