Michigan: BAMN will appeal loss on anti-affirmative action initiative

AP reports: A group opposing a November ballot initiative that would end some affirmative action programs in Michigan has begun the process of filing its latest legal appeal.

By Any Means Necessary, a pro-affirmative action group, said it notified the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday that it will contest a ruling made by U.S. District Judge Arthur Tarnow earlier this week. Legal briefs outlining the appeal likely will be filed next week.

The appeal aimed at keeping the proposal off the ballot was expected.

The ballot proposal, backed by the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative, would ban the use of race and gender preferences in public university admissions and government hiring. -- South Bend Tribune
