Firefighters win reverse-discrimination case at Supreme Court

The case is from New Haven, Conn., where 20 firefighters say they were denied a chance for promotion because of race-based reasons. Each did well enough on a special test to earn a promotion, but no black candidates did. The city, fearing the test discriminated against blacks, threw out the results. The Supreme Court sided with the firefighters, overturning a lower court's decision.

Here's a copy of the opinion.
