High court sends back Texas race-based plan

By Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court has sent a Texas case on race-based college admissions back to a lower court for another look.

Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing for the court, says a federal appeals court needs to subject the University of Texas admission plan to the highest level of judicial scrutiny.
