SFFA Files Motion for Summary Judgment Against Harvard

Edward Blum, president of Students for Fair Admissions, said, “Today’s court filing exposes the startling magnitude of Harvard’s discrimination against Asian-American applicants.”

Blum added, “This filing definitively proves that Harvard engages in racial balancing, uses race as far more than a ‘plus’ factor, and has no interest in exploring race-neutral alternatives. It is our hope that the court will carefully study the statistical, documentary, and testimonial evidence amassed against Harvard and end these unfair and unlawful practices.”

Blum added, “Harvard’s recent decision to issue a statement complaining that SFFA has taken the evidence ‘out of context’ and then to demand that the evidence be hidden from the public is disreputable, but typical. From the beginning of this case, Harvard has endeavored to litigate in secret because it knows the American people will be shocked to learn how it treats Asian-American applicants.”

Blum concluded, “We believe that the rest of the evidence will be released in the next few weeks, and it will further confirm that Harvard is in deliberate violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act.”
