Today, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reaffirmed an earlier CIR victory in the Ninth Circuit upholding the constitutionality of Proposition 209, which bans the State of California and its state universities from discriminating based on race.  The Court ruled that the earlier CIR-created precedent remained good law, and dismissed a challenge to it by the advocacy group known as “Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration, Immigrant Rights, and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary,” more popularly known as “BAMN.”
