And against the same ethnic group, no less. “As Harvard prepares to face a high-profile trial in a four-year-old lawsuit charging it discriminates against Asian-American applicants, another elite institution has come under fire for near-identical allegations: Yale University said Wednesday that the Department of Justice and the Department of Education are investigating its admissions process for possible discrimination,” Delano R. Franklin and Samuel W. Zwickel report in The Harvard Crimson. “Like its New Haven rival, Harvard is also facing a Justice Department probe into alleged discrimination against Asian-American applicants.”

“That’s on top of the ongoing lawsuit — brought by anti-affirmative action group Students for Fair Admissions in 2014 — which is slated to go to trial in a Boston courthouse on Oct. 15.”
