Supreme Court Punts on Affirmative Action Case

The Supreme Court "has sent a Texas case on race-based college admissions back to a lower court for another look," the AP reports.

"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."

Wonk Wire will round up reaction.

Decisions on marriage equality cases and the Voting Rights Act were not announced but could come tomorrow.
