In the last day of this US Supreme Court session, a big decision today regarding reverse discrimination. The US Supreme Court decided in favor of the 20 white fire fighters in New Haven, Connecticut who said they were just discriminated against because of their race. It's an intriguing case, a reverse discrimination and interestingly, Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor was one of the 3 judges who rejected an initial appeal in the case. Today the Supreme Court were five to four, saying the city of New Haven improperly threw out the results of exams when two female minorities qualified.

five to four是5对4的意思吗
最后一句话是 "法院的结果是5对4,并且由于有2名少数民族女性的存在不能给出个公正的答案"吗?

对。

最后一句话是 "法院的结果是5对4,并且由于有2名少数民族女性的存在不能给出个公正的答案"吗?

最高法院以5票对4票裁定,纽黑文市在有两名少数族裔女性通过考试的情况下(或因有两名少数族裔女性通过考试而)取消考试结果是不正当的做法。

原文有一些错误,如“were just discriminated against”。
