  • Jennifer Gratz said that her race was what cause her not to get into University of Michigan College of (LSA), and that the things they said were against certain ethnic groups and violated the equality protection of the fourth amendment. Bollinger said that they were not competitive enough applicants to be put on first review.
  • Supreme Court of the united states ( William rehnquist, Sandra Day,  Clarence thomas, Stephen Breyer, Paul stevens,and David scouter) Minority opinion argued that the equal protection clause prohibited racial discrimination for higher education admissions.
  • All of the judges wrote different claims and had different opinions on the case.  The precedent required the case to be dismissed. Race was one of the only factors to be considered, and their admissions met the requirements. There was no evidence to limit the amount of any race or ethnic groups. The policies did not violate the equal protection clause. Gratz ended up winning the case.
