Statement of Carrie Severino on Fisher v. University of Texas (Fisher II)


by JCN | June 23rd, 2016

Chief Counsel and Policy Director Carrie Severino released the following statement today:

“Today’s decision allows the University of Texas to get away with paying only lip service to the Constitution. The Equal Protection Clause simply doesn’t allow discrimination based on race, and schools shouldn’t be given a pass. This Supreme Court is apparently not prepared to do the hard work of enforcing our constitutional rights, and would rather make the University of Texas the judge inĀ its own case. We must insist that the next Justice have the backbone to step up to that role.”
