VFR on Roberts in 2005—Part II

Roberts worked for race preferences in Grutter v. Bollinger

If you’re looking for evidence of the total betrayal of conservative principles by President Bush and the conservative movement, then John Roberts—nominated by the former and staunchly supported by the latter—is the gift that doesn’t stop giving. Name the hot-button issue, and it turns out that ol’ John has devoted his much touted legal brilliance to helping the liberal side of it. According to an approving article in Inside Higher Ed, Roberts “participated in discussions on preparing a brief, filed by a coalition of higher education associations, defending the use of affirmative action.” The reference is to Gratz v. Bollinger and Grutter v. Bollinger, the latter of which, in a radical decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, placed race-conscious university admissions in the U.S. Constitution. [cont.]
