Michigan Affirmative Action Suit Settled

The New York Times (2/2/2007) reports that
the University of Michigan affirmative action
law suit has been settled. According to the article,
lead plaintiffs Jennifer Gratz and Patrick Hamacher
have agreed to "drop all claims under a... class-action
lawsuit against the university over its former
affirmative action admissions policies." In exchange
for dropping the suit, Gratz and Hamacher will each
receive $10,000 from the university to cover
"miscellaneous costs."
