On Tuesday, a federal Judge ruled that Harvard University’s admissions process does not discriminate against Asian-Americans. The high profile court case brought scrutiny to the university’s admissions practices, and Tuesday’s ruling spurred strong reactions on both sides of the debate.

Sue O’Connell, co-publisher of "Bay Windows" and the "South End News," said on Boston Public Radio Wednesday that the ruling had its share of ambiguity.

“In the end,” she said, “what we learned from the judge was that there was some sort of bias applied to Asian-American students who were trying to get into Harvard.” However, she followed, “the judge could not prove that any of the students involved in the case were discriminated against directly, and didn’t get in.”

Students for Fair Admissions, the group behind the lawsuit, is largely expected to appeal Tuesday’s decision, which could eventually bring the case to the Supreme Court.

O’Connell noted that “if you’re interviewing people for any reason, you need to be aware that you might have some unconscious bias.”

“It’d be great if society now took a look at ourselves and said, ‘Why did so many Asian-American students feel the need to bring this case?” she said.
