In 2003 the Supreme Court issued two opinions related to affirmative action, specifically university policies that use race as a factor in admissions decisions.  Both cases involved the University of Michigan.  In one case, the Court rejected an undergraduate admissions process that assigned points to an admissions score for anyone who as a racial minority.  In another case, the Court upheld a law school admissions process that included race as one of many factors used to evaluate an application.
