High Court Sends Back Texas Race-Based Plan

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court has sent a Texas case on race-based college admissions back to a lower court for another look.
    
The court's 7-1 decision Monday leaves unsettled many of the basic questions about the continued use of race as a factor in college admissions.
    
Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing for the court, says a federal appeals court needs to subject the University of Texas admission plan to the highest level of judicial scrutiny.
