The ruling that ended Michigan's ban on affirmative action in college admissions was put on hold Nov. 30 until the U.S. Supreme Court decides to hear an appeal by the state's attorney general.

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati issued an order staying its Nov. 15 ruling that the voter-approved mandate was unconstitutional.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette filed a petition Nov. 29 asking the high court to review the ruling.

If the high court hears the appeal, the stay will remain until the Supreme Court makes a ruling. If Mr. Schuette's appeal is denied, then the affirmative-action ban is ended.
