The move could drain confidence among companies and business in Britain and the wider EU, which some fear could even face more defections.

Supreme Court upholds race-based college admissions program | 23 June 2016 | The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday upheld the practice of considering race in college admissions, rejecting a white woman's challenge to a University of Texas affirmative action program designed to boost the enrollment of minority students.

The Supreme Court was weighing for the second time a challenge to the admissions system used by the University of Texas at Austin brought by Abigail Fisher, who was denied entry to the school for the autumn of 2008.

The 4-4 ruling was possible because there are only eight justices following February's death of conservative Antonin Scalia.
