Logan HowardHarvard filed a 93-page brief last week asserting that the university stands by a lower court’s judgement in its affirmative action case.

A lower court ruled in favor of Harvard last year, upholding the legality of the university’s race-conscious admissions policy.

In 2014, anti-affirmative action group Students for Fair Admissions sued Harvard University for their use of race in admissions.

All of this comes after the SFFA, led by Edward Blum, filed a brief in February of 2020 with the 1st Circuit Court of Appeals, arguing that the lower court judgement should be reversed.

AACE’s 2016 complaint — which also levelled allegations against Brown University and Dartmouth College — echoed language from the lawsuit against Harvard.
