The SCOTUS has ruled for the white firefighters in the New Haven case. The decision reverses SCOTUS nominee Sonia Sotomayor’s decision to uphold the city’s refusal to grant promotions to said firefighters based on the claim the promotion exam was racially biased. The decision is no surprise (to me at least) and I wonder how the right will attempt to exploit the decision as we approach the nomination hearings.
