    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 the permissible scopefactors in an admissions program, but only for the purpose of improving the learning environment through diversity in accordance with the university's constitutionally protected First Amendment right to Academic Freedom (at pp. 311–315 of the opinion.)

    The "diversity in the classroom" justification for considering race as "one" of the factors in admissions policies was different from the original purpose stated by UC Davis Medical School, whose special admissions program under review was designed to ensure admissions of traditionally discriminated-against minorities. UC Davis Medical School originally developed the program to (i) reduce the historic deficit of traditionally disfavored minorities in medical schools and the medical profession, (ii) counter the effects of societal discrimination, (iii) increase the number of physicians who will practice in communities currently underserved, and (iv) obtain the educational benefits that flow from an ethnically diverse student body.

    There was a plurality opinion in this case with the determining vote lying with Justice Lewis Powell, who had an intermediate opinion. Justice Powell stated, "If petitioner's purpose is to assure within its student body some specified percentage of a particular group merely because of its race or ethnic origin, such a preferential purpose must be rejected not as insubstantial, but as facially invalid." Powell said, "Preferring members of any one group for no reason other than race or ethnic origin is discrimination for its own sake." The 4th goal, obtaining the educational benefits that flow from an ethnically diverse student body, is the only goal that Powell said was clearly a "permissible goal for an institution of higher education," and for this reason, it did not survive strict scrutiny. Also, because this quota focused on solely ethnic diversity, he said it would "hinder rather than further attainment of genuine diversity." Because the Medical School had applied a quota system (rather than a plus factor or other affirmative action system), Powell found it invalid. Powell noted, however, with emphasis that, "a properly tailored affirmative action program designed to promote diversity could survive strict judicial scrutiny."

    DC vs Heller is going to be denied by skill of the preferrred courtroom. although technically Heller has a dream case - the SC won't section with Heller by way of fact that is going to strike down too many gun bans in too many places. The courtroom structures in our united states of america have had a container day those previous many years legislating from the bench. could the preferrred courtroom section with Heller - which seems logical to me - that is going to kill the golden goose and the end result could be new congressional law that would preclude destiny SC - or any courtroom - interference in state rights.
