Thursday round-up


  • In The Huffington Post, Alan Morrison weighs in on Evenwel v. Abbott, the “one person, one vote” case; he argues that, to “assure that states doing reapportionment follow the law . . . there must be one right answer to the question of what the baseline should be for drawing districts. The answer that has consistently been used is population.”
  • In The Washington Post, Chris Cillizza looks at the 2016 presidential election and its potential impact on the Court, describing the stakes as “remarkably high”: “Who wins the White House will shape not only the country over the following four years but could well leave an impact on the court that stretches decades beyond that.”
