Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider Proposal 2 decision

On Sept. 9 the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals issued an order stating that the entire court would reconsider the July 1 decision of a three-judge panel that had held Proposal 2, the ballot initiative that bans affirmative action in university admissions, to be unconstitutional. 

Granting such review automatically sets aside the earlier decision and the case is re-submitted to the entire court. Briefs from all parties will be due by December.
