Nina Totenberg on Schuette v. CDAA

Nina Totenberg of NPR – the high priestess of Supreme Court Journalism – on the affirmative action case from this week Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action.  We got a correct pronunciation of the petitioner’s name (“Shut-ee”), an explanation of the somewhat complex political structuring doctrine, and Mr. Schuette’s perspective on the case in a phoned-in interview.

The 4-minute explanation of the case is below.  Give it a listen.
