So much for transparency, huh? Princeton University, facing a lawsuit over racial discrimination in college admissions of Asian-Americans, is suing to keep their admissions data private.

The Ivy League institution sued the federal government to block the release of admissions documents that could “potentially expose the admissions practices of elite universities and, some argue, could hinder efforts towards affirmative action,” The Daily Pennsylvanian reports.

Princeton is among the elite universities being sued by Students for Fair Admissions on allegations of imposing caps on Asian applicants. Harvard was already forced in court to turn over some admissions data to the plaintiffs’ lawyers.
