A three-judge panel of the 2nd Circuit on Monday declined to halt West Point’s policies while it thoroughly reviewed the SFFA’s appeal. The panel rendered its denial in a succinct decision devoid of any detailed rationale.
Consovoy McCarthy attorneys representing the SFFA cautioned the Supreme Court that delaying the prohibition of West Point’s affirmative action would negatively impact current applicants and urged the justices to intervene on their emergency docket.
