Anti-affirmative action advocacy group Students for Fair Admissions sent a letter to the First Circuit Court of Appeals Tuesday asking for the release of a briefing schedule in the appeal of its ongoing lawsuit against Harvard.
A briefing schedule would outline the dates when the two parties must submit opening, response, and reply briefs summarizing the reasons for or against an appeal.
“Although SFFA understands the many demands on this Court’s time, it respectfully asks for a briefing schedule as expeditiously as possible,” Consovoy wrote.
AdvertisementIn the letter, Consovoy also cited the case’s national significance as a reason for requesting an expedited timeline.
“This case involves issues of national importance regarding the legality of Harvard’s use of race in college admissions,” Consovoy wrote.
