Recent Supreme Court Opinions on Affirmative Action, Student Loan Forgiveness, and Free Speech

Updated: Jul 5, 2023



In a 6-3 ruling yesterday, the Supreme Court issued their opinion on Students of Fair Admissions, Inc., v. President and Fellows of Harvard College, stating that the race considerations used in the admissions programs of the University of North Carolina and Harvard College violate the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.


This morning, the Supreme Court issued two more prevalent opinions. In 303 Creative LLC v. Elenis, the Court delivered a 6-3 vote that ruled in favor of a web designer who claimed to have a First Amendment right in refusing to provide business services for same-sex marriages, which was otherwise required under Colorado law. In Biden v. Nebraska, the Court delivered another 6-3 vote that ruled against President Biden's student loan forgiveness program that would have cancelled almost $430 billion in student loan debt, reasoning that there was not clear and convincing congressional authorization to create such a program.
