Jeffrey Wice Authors Article in Election Law Journal

Jeffrey M. Wice, of counsel to SRYL, has coauthored an article in the newest  Election Law Journal (Volume 2, Number 4). “Court Deference to State Legislatures in Redistricting  After Perry v. Perez” analyzes the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Perry v. Perez in the context of competing precedents, surveys post-Perry redistricting cases, and considers Perry’s implications for the future. The article provides a framework for issues to be considered when state legislatures (and other redistricting authorities)  fail to redistrict  or when courts are faced with redrawing redistricting plans found to violate federal, state or local law.
