U.S. Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar was granted an ethics waiver to assist the Biden administration in making the case for race-based admissions, according to documents obtained by Protect the Public’s Trust.
The Department of Justice ethics form waived Prelogar, a former Harvard professor, of perceived ethics violations for working on a case before the Supreme Court related to race-based admissions rules at Harvard University, according to a form obtained by the ethics watchdog group Protect the Public’s Trust. The case is titled “Students for Fair Admissions Inc. v. President & Fellows of Harvard College.”
“While ethics waivers are not uncommon, transparency is vital to ensure the interests of the American public are protected,” Chamberlain said. “The timeline of events around Ms. Prelogar’s waiver and her involvement in this important case raise questions.”
