WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The U.S. Supreme Court has decided to weigh in on a Michigan law that bans race as a consideration in the college admissions process.
Michigan voters approved the ban on affirmative action in college admissions in 2006.
An appeals court ruling later overturned the ban.
Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is challenging the appeals court's ruling, saying college admissions -quote- "must be based upon merit."
The supreme court will add the Michigan case to another case in Texas that it's already considering.
A decision is not expected to be released until June.
