“Fear of litigation alone cannot justify an employer’s reliance on race to the detriment of individuals who passed the examinations and qualified for promotions.”
-Justice Anthony Kennedy, for the majority in Ricci v New Haven.

Uh, what?  It wasn’t fear of litigation alone, it was fear of litigation based on precedent and an obvious showing of bias in the test that justified the exclusion of the results.

Is it just me, or have there have been some seriously flawed opinions coming from the SCOTUS lately?

Edit:  Also, “reverse discrimination?”  That’s got to be one of the most offensive terms that the media is currently using.   It just reinforces the notion that minorites are still not equal, even when they’re the ones discriminating.
