S.B. Woo, former Lt. Governor of Delaware (1985-89) and President of 80-20 said, "Our brief gives a superb account of why the discrimination against Asian Americans caused by a race-conscious admission policy is wrong. It also calls the Court's attention to similar discrimination against Jewish American students in the past."
Kenneth L. Marcus, President of the Brandeis Center and a former staff director of the federal Civil Rights Commission commented, "It wasn't right for the elite colleges to limit Jewish students then, it's still not right to limit Asian American students now."
Alan Gura, attorney for the joint filing and a member of the LDB Legal Advisory Board, said, "Every facet of the discrimination that Asian Americans face today in college admissions has been reflected in the Jewish experience. Read my brief."
