    i would think you'd like them reconsidering whether it was appropriate to lift the ban on affirmative action. you do realize if they reverse themselves on reconsideration, then there WILL be a ban on affirmative action. right?

    i'm sorry you hate law and legal procedure, but there is always recourse to ask the court to reconsider a decision if it "misapprehended the law" or failed to take into consideration certain facts which were before it at the time.... or if new facts arose which were not available at the time of the initial motion practice. and in this case, only a few members of the court made such an important decision. the rest of the court wants to opportunity to make a determination.

    glad to be of assistance, dude.

    oh yeah... and if the motion is denied in the circuit court, they will still have recourse to go to the supreme court.

    that's how our legal system works.

    Affirmative Action is nothing more than institutionalized racism. It has no place in 21st century America.

    i don't agree. though i do think there were better ways to address the problems that exist than have been explored.

    that said. the state struck down use of racial preferences and banned them.

    the court said that affirmative action SHOULD be banned.

    this full panel will address whether it agrees or not.

    so i'm not sure why Dude has a bug up his butt about it.

    oh... and for the record. i don't like affirmative action. i think anti-discrimination laws (assuming they're actually enforced) should be sufficient to deal with institutionalized racism.

    i also think the Bakke decision (which is currently the law on the subject...hence the circuit really probably being precluded from banning affirmative action) was a horrible decision with a terrible societal outcome.

    if it weren't for racist slugs like you, perhaps there wouldn't be an argument for affirmative action.

    You blame me, instead of black behaviour?
