Levitt Contribution to Reuters VRA Symposium

Justin Levitt weighs in in the online Reuters symposium on what should happen after a decision in Shelby County: “Where discriminatory democracies were broken and have not fully healed, local decisions on representation need a sturdy federal floor protecting race and ethnicity. If the 15th Amendment does not grant Congress that power, nothing does. Which means that if Section 5 falls, the only effective change may be change at the Supreme Court.”
