The Morning Texan: Fisher (perhaps), Juneteenth and more


While Thursday morning will be cloudy, the day is expected to be clear and hot, according to the National Weather Service. Thursday will have a high of 97 degrees.

The Supreme Court of the United States is expected to release a series of opinions on cases at 9 a.m. Thursday morning. Fisher v. Texas, the Supreme Court case that will decide the future of race-conscious admissions at UT and possibly in the United States, could be one of these cases. Fisher v. Texas is the oldest case without a decision. It is also the only case from October without a decision.

Here is some morning reading:
