Students for Fair Admissions filed a lawsuit against the United States Department of Education on Thursday related to the Department of Education’s investigation into the University’s admission practices concerning Asian-Americans.The complaint, filed in the federal district court in the District of Columbia, alleges that the Department of Education has failed, contrary to its obligations under the Freedom of Information Act, to produce documents related to the Department’s investigation into the University.The investigation ended in September 2015 with a determination by the Department’s Office of Civil Rights that “there was insufficient evidence to substantiate that the University violated Title VI,” which prohibits racial discrimination in programs receiving federal assistance.SFFA is run by Edward Blum, who unsuccessfully attempted to persuade the Supreme Court earlier this year to find that the University of Texas’ race-conscious admissions program violated the Equal Protection Clause of the United States Constitution.The decision upholding the University of Texas’ program, known as Fisher II, prompted a June 23 statement from President Christopher Eisgruber ’83 praising the Court’s decision, saying that “[p]olicies like the one approved by the Court today are critically important to Princeton University and institutions of higher education across America.”In announcing Thursday’s complaint, Blum called on the University to end its affirmative action policy.
