WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court today will take up affirmative action at universities.

It'll hear arguments over a University of Texas program that uses race as a factor in a quarter of its incoming classes.

Opponents say the university is practicing illegal discrimination by considering race at all. The case could produce new limits on affirmative action at universities, or roll it back entirely.

Information on the case is on the US Supreme Court Website.
