[JURIST] The US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit [official website] has withdrawn an order allowing a student to file a response to a rehearing petition by Kamehameha Schools [education website] in a lawsuit over the school's admissions policy. The court issued an order last week permitting a non-native Hawaiian to file papers in the school's appeal, but the court said Thursday the order was mistakenly issued. The court ruled [PDF opinion; JURIST report] last month that an admissions policy barring non-natives violated federal civil rights laws. Thousands protested [JURIST report] in Hawaii following the court's ruling, and Kamehameha petitioned for a rehearing en banc. The Honolulu Advertiser has more.
