More than just a little bit ackward, and in a reverse discrimination sort of way. If you aren’t familiar with the “Ricci case” read this.
The AP is reporting that the Supreme Court just overturned the Ricci case with a 5-4 ruling with Kennedy writing the decision. This was a very high profile ruling by Judge Sonia Sotomayor, who rejected the white firefighters’ complaint that they were discriminated against when an entire test was thrown out because not enough black firefighters scored highly enough. Latino woman takes one on the chin.
Kennedy’s opinion here.
