Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School District,
the case involving race in public schools, is here. Chief Justice Roberts wrote the plurality/majority opinion that had Kennedy in parts but lost him in others. Justice Kennedy concurred; according to Kennedy, Roberts' opinion went too far in some respects. Justice Breyer filed a 77-page dissent, joined by Stevens, Souter, and Ginsburg, which argues that the plurality opinion would "break the promise of Brown." Justice Thomas concurred, filing a 35-page response to Justice Breyer. Justice Stevens filed a brief dissent, which among other things expresses JPS's "firm conviction that no Member of the Court that I joined in 1975 would have agreed with today's decision."
