PLF's brief in Fisher called "most persuasive overall"
The Weekly Standard ran an article this week on the twenty or so briefs that were filed on behalf of Abigail Fisher in her challenge to the University of Texas’s race-based admissions policy. The article finds PLF’s brief, which was joined by the Center for Equal Opportunity, American Civil Rights Institute, National Association of Scholars, and Project 21, to be “the most persuasive overall.” The Weekly Standard also said that, after reading PLF’s brief, “[n]o rational person can read this eloquent set of arguments thoughtfully and continue to suppose that racial preferences for the sake of diversity are a good thing. They are poison.” You can read the whole article here. The discussion of PLF’s brief can be found here.
Update: I foolishly forgot to include a link to the brief.

One of the most fundamental rights of American citizens is the right to seek redress from illegal government action in a court of law.

Nowhere is this more prevalent than in the government’s attempts to stifle landowner suits challenging federal agency action under the Clean Water Act.
