    Perhaps the most interesting thing in Fisher is the notice that Powell’s opinion in Bakke was the “principal opinion.” Bakke was a 4-1-4 case, and this is new terminology. Is SCOTUS recognizing thatplurality decisions have a lasting imprimatur? If so, which way?

    One law prof posted to a listserv that he is fielding all sorts of media inquiries about Fisher and he keeps insisting that Fisher is basically a nothing decision but that Nassar and Vance (today’s Title VII decisions) are a much bigger deal. Naturally, the reporters can’t or won’t hear it.
