The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a case over whether to identify students challenging Kamehameha Schools’ admissions policy giving preference to those of native Hawaiian ancestry.

The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to hear a challenge by four anonymous students to the Kamehameha Schools’ admissions policy giving preference to students with Hawaiian blood.

The court, without comment, announced this morning that it denied the request by the four non-Hawaiian students, who feared they would be subject to racial attacks if their identities were disclosed.
