Washington sources stated that an Asian-American group is suing Harvard University, saying that admission files showed a pattern of discrimination against the community that goes back decades. Meanwhile the media reported that the group, Students for Fair Admissions, has demanded the varsity to publicly release admissions data on hundreds of thousands of applicants which challenges Harvard’s admissions policies.
Meanwhile the plaintiffs said in a letter to the court that the data was so compelling that there was no need for a trial, and that they would ask the judge to rule summarily in their favor based on the data alone. William S. Consovoy, the lawyer for the group, said in his letter to the court “This is an important and closely watched civil rights case”.
Accordingly students for Fair Admissions contend in their lawsuit that Harvard systematically and unconstitutionally discriminates against Asian-American applicants by penalizing their high achievement as a group, while giving preferences to other racial and ethnic minorities and moreover they said that Harvard’s admission process amounts to an illegal quota system.
