Opening statements are scheduled for Monday in a lawsuit that alleges Harvard University’s admission process discriminated against Asian-Americans. Virginia-based Students for Fair Admissions claims that Harvard unfairly rejected qualified applicants to keep its Asian-American student population artificially low. Harvard denies the charges and said race was only one factor in its application process. The trial will begin at a federal court in Boston.
