When the Supreme Five ruled in Fisher that strict scrutiny must be applied to the Texas scheme of admitting the top ten percent of high school grads to its flagship university, no doubt the quintet assumed that this would sink this affirmative action program. But rather than slit the program's throat themselves, they remanded the case back to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to do the dirty work.  Well, guess what?  The circuit court ruled that the UT approach withstands strict scrutiny.
