Court Overturns MI Affirmative Action Vote

    The voice of Michigan voters has been overturned by a Federal appeals court, as a publicly approved ban on affirmative action has been halted by the courts.

    In 2006, Michigan voters approved a ban on affirmative action in college admissions and public hiring.  A Federal appeals court has thrown out that ban, saying it's illegal and makes it a huge burden to those who want to mount their own campaign to protect affirmative action, undermining the right that all citizens have equal access.

    The ban forced the University of Michigan and other public schools to change policies.
