Derailing Affirmative Action

Randy Pech says the government's disadvantaged business programs discriminated against his company. This fall, the U.S. Supreme Court will decide if he's right.

"The problem the government has is that the program has been in place for a generation," counters Kennedy. "At some point a remedial program serves its purpose or demonstrates it is ineffective. If it's served its purpose, the government can't justify continuing. If it is ineffective, the government can't justify its use."
