Appeals Court strikes down Michigan's affirmative action ban

Can you find the Action News van?

The US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit has just struck down Michigan's ban on affirmative action. In a 2-to-1 ruling, the judges said the ban imposed by Proposal 2 "unconstitutionally alters Michigan’s political structure by impermissibly burdening racial minorities.”

On a side note, the WXYZ 7's reporter on the Diag is having trouble finding a "person on the street" who is anti-affirmative action to interview. If you are anti-affirmative action and would like to be interviewed for the evening news, now is your chance to shine.

More on the ruling from the Times.
