A big week at the court:  The justices released two important decisions, Fisher v. University of Texas, which is a very narrow opinion that strikes down a portion of UT’s acceptance criteria which is based on affirmative action, and Shelby County v. Fisher, which declares portions of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act unconstitutional.  Both opinions are long.  More on each later.
