What was the name of the lawsuit filed against Stanford University...?

where they chose an african american for admission because they needed to fill a quota? They were sued by a student who had nearly perfect credentials, and ended up winning, because Stanford said during the trial that they chose the man only because they needed an african american.

What's the name of the case?

Update:

i don't want this to be a forum for the politics of affirmative action.

Update 2:

OKAY, I'M NOT GOING TO SAY THIS AGAIN. THIS IS NOT A FORUM FOR THE POLITICS OF AFFIRMATIVE ACTION.

Update 3:

no, i didn't mean uc v. bakke, but that is a good case and will help with my paper. thanks :D

    Its called affirmative action and needs to be abolished. Let me see if I can find that for you.

    Perhaps you mean USC vs Bakke. ( link below)

    Below is a link to the same type or scenario and action at Universtity of Michigan, Gratz v. Bollinger.

    Stanford President John Hennessy last week made a strong statement underscoring the university's continued commitment to affirmative action, a sentiment unanimously endorsed by the university's Faculty Senate.

    Regents of the University of California v. Bakke, 438 U.S. 265 (1978) was a landmark decision of the Supreme Court of the United States on affirmative action. It bars quota systems in college admissions but affirms the constitutionality of affirmative action programs giving equal access to minorities.
