ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, the Project on Fair Representation, a nonprofit legal foundation based in Arlington, VA, released a video of Abigail Fisher, the plaintiff in Abigail Fisher v. Univ. of Texas-Austin.
All media outlets have POFR's permission to use the video and the individual clips for broadcast or publication.
On Dec. 9, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court once again will hear arguments in this case that challenge the reintroduction of racial classifications and preferences in the admissions process at UT-Austin.
In June, 2013, the justices vacated and remanded a ruling from the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals that had upheld UT's race-based admissions policies. On remand, the Fifth Circuit again upheld UT's policies. Ms. Fisher petitioned the court which agreed to hear her case for a second time.
Mr. Bert Rein of Wiley Rein will argue on behalf of Ms. Fisher. He is joined by Will Consovoy, Thomas McCarthy and Michael Connolly of Consovoy McCarthy Park; and Paul Terrill of Terrill Law.
