Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin, 11-345

Because the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit did not hold defendant-University to the demanding burden of strict scrutiny articulated in Grutter and Regents of Univ. of Cal. v. Bakke, 438 U. S. 265, its decision affirming the district court's grant of summary judgment to the University on plaintiff's claim that defendant-University’s consideration of race in admissions violated the Equal Protection Clause was incorrect. The judgment for defendant-University is therefore vacated and remanded.
