Department of Justice sues Yale, alleging race-based discrimination

OCTOBER 8, 2020 / 9:50 PM / AP

The Justice Department sued Yale University on Thursday, weeks after prosecutors said the university was illegally discriminating against Asian American and White applicants in violation of federal civil rights law.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Connecticut, alleges Yale "discriminates based on race and national origin in its undergraduate admissions process, and that race is the determinative factor in hundreds of admissions decisions each year."

It comes about two months after the Justice Department publicly accused Yale of discrimination, saying its investigation found that Asian American and White students have "only one-tenth to one-fourth of the likelihood of admission as African American applicants with comparable academic credentials."

Yale had denied the allegations, calling them "meritless" and "hasty."
