Schuette v. BAMN, 12-682

An amendment to the Constitution of the State of Michigan, approved and enacted by its voters, which prohibits the use of race-based preferences as part of the admissions process for state universities is upheld, where the plurality concludes that there is no authority in the Federal Constitution or in the Court's precedents for the Judiciary to set aside Michigan laws that commit to the voters the determination whether racial preferences may be considered in governmental decisions, in particular with respect to school admissions.
