Write the Opinion – Fisher v. University of Texas (200 Points)

In the Supreme Court Cast of Fisher v. University of Texas the Court has decided to vote in favor of Fischer.

    Under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourth Amendment it states that all persons are subject to the jurisdiction of the United State and no person shall be denied rights or privileges.  And no state is able to make a law that violates a no person shall be denied rights or privileges.  Meaning all persons of the United States are considered to be equal.
This case shows that the University of Texas denied Fisher admittance into the University because of her race.  And that the school making a decision whether or not to admit a student based largely on their race and not their academics as well as having a quota for a admitting a certain number of persons of a race is unconstitutional.
In Regents of the University of California v. Bakke the court upheld the previous decisions that the Davis Medical School violated the Equal Protection Clause because it had created a “quota system”, requiring it to have so many students of a different race admitted.  In Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School Dist. The court said the schools violated the Equal Protection Clause because the most important factor in admitting a student was based on their race.  And in Ricci v. Destefano the court declared that because the applicants did outscore the other on the tests and were not admitted solely due to their race, it was also violating the Equal Protection Clause.
