Matthew McNicholas Discusses the Supreme Court’s Ruling Involving Affirmative Action
Partner Matthew McNicholas discussed the Supreme Court’s ruling involving affirmative action on the KGO radio talk show, hosted by Ethan Bearman. Matthew pointed out that Justice Antonin Scalia’s recent death and Elena Kagan’s recusal may have affected the decision.
In a 4-3 ruling, the Supreme Court upheld the University of Texas’ affirmative action program. “There was a personal achievement index, and it was a holistic review, as what the University called it, considering many factors including race. And so that’s what really is at issue,” he said.
