Notwithstanding a modest consensus that affirmative action is doomed after Wednesday’s arguments in Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin, there are hints the Court might delay a substantive decision, dissatisfying all parties.

For background on the case, see Legal Insurrection’s preview, here.  The full transcript of Wednesday’s oral arguments is here.

In the aftermath of the Clock Boy incident, Ahmed and many new allies on the left claimed that his arrest was proof of anti-Islam bigotry in a racist country.

This year’s valedictorian at Ahmed’s old high school disagrees.
