A Couple of Interesting Amicus Briefs Filed in CA Supreme Court in Santa Monica’s California Voting Rights Act Case

The California Supreme Court is hearing an important case about whether the City of Santa Monica can be forced to draw districts for conducting its city elections under the California Voting Rights Act. My earlier coverage is here.

Amicus Curiae Brief —  Brief from Bruce A. Wessel in support of neither party, bringing Cooper v. Harris and scholarship on racial gerrymandering to the Court’s attention.

Amicus Curiae Brief —  Brief from Amici Scholars in support of Plaintiffs (Doug Mirell brief), bringing in wisdom of lots of voting rights scholars.

The California AG has received an extension to file an amicus brief until July 12.

You can find the filings in the case at this page.
