Late today, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals vacated the panel decision in CDAA v. Granholm.  That decision had struck down Michigan's Proposal 2 as unconstitutional under the Equal Protection Clause.  The court has now scheduled the case for rehearing en banc.   I will blog more about this development on Monday, but this is some (mildly) good news for the weekend.
