Lawyers for people who sued to overturn the University of Michigan's use of affirmative action in its undergraduate admissions want the school to pay their fees.
They've submitted a $2.1 million bill.
The University says it isn't responsible for the fees. Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld a general affirmative action policy at the University of Michigan law school. But the court struck down the university's undergraduate formula as too rigid because it awarded admission points based on race.
In response, the university adopted a new application system that considers race but doesn't award points based on minority status.
