More on Affirmative Action case (Fisher)

Scotusblog presents are relatively readable summary of the UT-Austin affirmative action case (Fisher).  One of the issues is whether the university's race-conscious admission policies have succeeded in reaching a "critical mass" of minorities in the student body.  Under the Supreme Court's Grutter precedent, the program must be discontinued once the university reaches a "critical mass" of minorities.  As usual, the liberals and conservaitves have largely already indicated how they will vote by their questions and statements at oral argument.  Justice Kagan recused herself.
