After lengthy and heated oral arguments Monday, Supreme Court experts say the justices are likely to bar the use of affirmative action in college admissions.
“This proved to be a full-contact oral argument for both the advocates and the justices,” said George Washington University law professor and Fox News contributor Jonathan Turley. “The challengers clearly had a better day before the court.”
The court heard two similar cases on the use of race in college admissions at Harvard University and the University of North Carolina in a nearly five-hour session. An activist group called Students for Fair Admissions brought both cases, and seemed to have more justices on its side.
