The Morning Texan: Fisher (maybe), Westboro Baptist Church and more


While the National Weather Service is predicting Thursday will be a hot day, there is also a 20 percent chance of thunderstorms, which will hopefully cool things off a bit.

At 9 a.m., the Supreme Court is expected to release a few decisions on cases the justices have heard. One of those cases could be Fisher v. Texas, a case that challenges UT's use of race as one factor of many in admissions. Fisher v. Texas is the oldest unnanounced court case. It is also the only case from October without a decision.

Here is some morning reading:

Yesterday's most read story online: The Westboro Baptist Church visited Austin on Thursday to protest the Capitol, the University and Camp Mabry. They were met by a group of students who were counter-protesting the protest. 

What you have to read: The University is currently working to restore several old air conditioning systems on campus, including the ones in Parlin and Calhoun. Some of the equipment in these buildings is more than 40 years old.

In case you missed it: In a 21-page document released Monday, UT has outlined the expectations, duties and opportunities of the inaugural dean of the Dell Medical School. UT is hoping to fill the the position by early 2014.
