The US Supreme Court has agreed to consider the inde­pend­ent state legis­lature theory in the case Moore v. Harper, a case decided as Harper v. Hall in the North Carolina Supreme Court. ISLT would cause signi­fic­ant disrup­tion to Congressional elections and the Presidential election by poten­tially nulli­fy­ing state consti­tu­tional provi­sions regard­ing federal elec­tions. State consti­tu­tional bans on gerry­man­der­ing in Florida, Ohio, North Carolina and other states could die, as could inde­pend­ent redis­trict­ing commis­sions in Arizona, Cali­for­nia, Michigan and other states. Join us for a conversation about ISLT with three speakers: Professor Richard Pildes the Sudler Family Professor of Constitutional Law at the New York University School of Law, Carolyn Shapiro, Professor of Law and Associate Dean of Academic Administration at Chicago-Kent College of Law, and Jason Torchinsky, partner at Holtzman Vogel and election law specialist.
