Supreme Court to look at Texas case
Tyler — The Supreme Court agreed to tackle another election-year blockbuster and will decide whether the University of Texas' race-conscious admission policies violate the rights of white applicants.
Abigail Noel Fisher individually sued the university after her college application was rejected in 2008 when she was a high school senior in Sugar Land.
The school defends its policy of considering race as one of many factors -- such as test scores, community service, leadership and work experience -- designed to create a diverse campus.
