Supreme Court torn over Texas affirmative action program

Additional evidence might determine whether the use of race is necessary to increase diversity at the University of Texas.
The justices rehashed many of the same arguments they discussed three years ago in the case of Abigail Fisher.
Justice Anthony Kennedy - who's crucial to the outcome - says there's information "we should know and don't know."
