“The U.S. Supreme Court may end all racial preferences in college admissions when it hands down a decision in Fisher vs. the University of Texas later this year.”
If this particular case is really that important, watch for the left to offer a cash bribe to Mr. or Ms. Fisher to withdraw the case so it won’t be heard (and hence, won’t be decided).
This is EXACTLY what the left did with the Taxman v. Piscataway School System case some years back. I’m sure most in this forum have forgotten, but Sharon Taxman was a teacher in the Piscataway (NJ) school system who was passed over for a position which was instead given to a black teacher. But the school made the mistake of telling Taxman the truth, that the black teacher was awarded the position because she was black.
This was as “cold as they come” a case before the Court for ending affirmative action in America, and the left knew it. The left knew they were going to lose.
Their “solution” was to offer Ms. Taxman $480,000 to withdraw her case before it could be heard. She did (as it happened, her lawyer had already bought a $2,000 suit for his oral arguments before the Court). She had the opportunity to strike a blow for equality before the law — a case that would make history — and she “sold out” for the cash.
If the Fisher case is that ironclad, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this happen a second time.
Also, I believe that somehow Chief Justice Roberts was “gotten to” by the administration thugs to switch his vote on ObamaCare (there may have been problems in his past, particularly concerning the adoption of his children, that he didn’t want made public). Perhaps the Obammunists will remind him that he still “owes them” on this case, as well.
Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is already preparing to take this to the supreme court if he has to.
>>Attorney General Bill Schuette today announced his intention to file a petition of certiorari with the U.S. Supreme Court to appeal a split 8-7 en banc ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit that overturned Article I, Section 26 of the Michigan Constitution, otherwise known as the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative (MCRI). <<
