Harvard, Law Review Look to Dismiss Anti-Affirmative Action Lawsuit Against the Publication

Dec 28, 2018 by

Lawyers for Harvard, Harvard Law School, and the Harvard Law Review filed motions Monday to dismiss a lawsuit brought against them by a Texas-based anti-affirmative action group alleging the Law Review’s editor selection process illegally uses “race and sex preferences.”

The group — Faculty, Alumni, and Students Opposed to Racial Preferences — filed the original complaint with the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts in early October, alleging the Law Review’s selection process violates Title VI and Title IX, two federal anti-discrimination laws.

FASORP also named the University, the Law School, and U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos as defendants, writing that “federal law prohibits universities that accept federal funds from discriminating on account of race or sex.” The suit names DeVos because FASORP argues Harvard should not receive federal funding if it violates these laws.
