This morning, the Supreme Court issued its decision on a case involving affirmative action and race-based admissions at the University of Texas, Austin.
In a 7-1 ruling, the high court "vacated and remanded" an earlier decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, which had upheld the university's program. Justice Elena Kagan recused herself because when she was a lawyer at the Justice Department she had been involved in the case.
In other words, the justices said is that the case needs to head back down to the lower courts for a review.
For your explainer on why is Daria Roithmayr, professor at the USC Gould School of Law.
