Grutter v. Bollinger

The Grutter majority opinion (like the Gratz majority opinion) applies â??strict scrutinyâ?
review to the affirmative action plan at issue. Why does strict scrutiny review apply
here? What are the components of strict scrutiny review? The dissenting Justices also
agree that strict scrutiny review applies, but they disagree with the way in which the
majority applies strict scrutiny. What is the crux of this disagreement?

Compare the Grutter majorityâ??s â??narrow tailoringâ? analysis with that in the Rehnquist
and Kennedy dissenting opinions. What â??inferencesâ? do Chief Justice Rehnquist and
Justice Kennedy draw from the facts that the majority does not draw? How do these
inferences distinguish Rehnquistâ??s and Kennedyâ??s reasoning and conclusions from the
majorityâ??s?
