Abstract

Forte argues that in the long running case of Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin, insufficient notice has been paid to the shifting justifications offered by the University of Texas for its racially targeted admissions program. In some ways, the University has realized that it may have been too honest for its own good, and the change of its grounds reflects the way the Supreme Court has allowed universities to play a game of charade.
