Schuette Praises Supreme Court Decision to Upholds Michigan Ban on Affirmative Action

Facebook

On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court in a 6-2 decision upheld the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative or as its more commonly known as the ban on Affirmative Action.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette praised the court’s decision calling it “monumental” and saying the “ruling is a victory for Michigan citizens and a victory for the rule of law.”

In 2006, Michigan voters said it was wrong to treat people differently based on the color of skin and Schuette noted that Supreme Court Justices Kennedy, Roberts and Alito acknowledged the importance of the people’s democratic right to govern themselves when they wrote their lead opinion.

Eight justices participated in the decision and six of them agreed that Michigan voters did not violate the equal protection clause when they required equal treatment in university admissions.
