The United States Supreme Court has ruled that Harvard and UNC’s admissions programs violate the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment. Affirmative action in college admissions is now illegal. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the decision for the majority of the court, which ruled 6-3 for the students. Roberts was joined by Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Barrett. Justice Gorsuch filed a concurring opinion joined by Thomas, and Justice Sotomayor filed a dissenting opinion joined by Justices Kagan and Jackson. Justice Jackson filed her own dissent.
The court heard two cases with the same issues, Students for Fair Admissions v. President and Fellows of Harvard College and Students for Fair Admissions, Inc. v. University of North Carolina.
