Grutter v. Bollinger

A U.S. Supreme Court decision in June 2003 upholding the principle of affirmative action in the University of Michigan Law School admissions process. Filed by a group of white applicant against the university’s president, the suit sought to force the law school to evaluate applicants on a race-blind basis, but the Court upheld the right of the school to take race into consideration so long as it did not weight race more heavily in the application process than any other characteristics, such as being a class officer or team captain.
