AUSTIN (AP) — Attorneys for a woman is renewing her appeal of a federal appeals court ruling that upheld the use of race in University of Texas undergraduate admissions.

Abigail Fisher’s attorneys filed their appeal Tuesday with the full 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, asking that it overturn the three-judge 5th Circuit Court panel’s ruling. That 2-1 ruling July 15th held that barring the university’s “limited use of race” would hurt diversity on the Austin campus.

Fisher, who is white, sued the university in 2008 after she was denied admission. The case went to the U.S. Supreme Court last year, but justices voted 7-1 to tell the lower appeals court to re-examine Fisher’s arguments.

The university said at the time that the justices’ decision would not affect its admissions policies.
