Lawyers have agreed to dismiss a significant test case on racial preferences in private-school admissions.

At issue in Doe v. Kamehameha Schools was whether private schools violated civil rights law when they gave racial preferences to Native Hawaiians to remedy past discrimination. The case was dismissed on Friday by agreement of the parties, according to SCOTUSblog.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals had upheld the Hawaiian-first admission policy in an 8-7 ruling, according to the Associated Press.
