Federal Court Will Look At Michigan’s Ban On Affirmative Action In Gov’t Hiring And School Admissions

DETROIT (AP) – A federal appeals court says it will take a fresh look at a decision that overturned Michigan’s ban on affirmative action in college admissions and government hiring.

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati said that a majority of judges agreed to take the case. That means a July 1 decision by a three-judge panel has been erased.

That panel threw out a law that bans the consideration of race in college admissions.

Michigan voters approved the ban in 2006.
