Earlier description:

The 2015 supplement is shipping in time for fall classes, and will now include edited versions of the Evenwel one person, one vote case in the district court and the Supreme Court’s recent opinion in Williams-Yulee. Here’s an earlier written description of the supplement:

The 2015 Supplement to the fifth edition of Election Law: Cases and Materials will be up to date through the end of the Supreme Court’s October 2014 term. It includes an edited version of of the Supreme Court’s new campaign finance case, McCutcheon v. FEC, an edited version of Shelby County v. Holder, and coverage of the Supreme Court’s consideration of new redistricting cases from Alabama and Arizona, raising new questions about racial gerrymandering claims and the scope of state power to enact citizen redistricting commissions for congressional districts via voter initiative.

The supplement also considers developments in Voting Rights Act litigation after the Supreme Court’s Shelby County case, including new disputes over voter identification requirements, and covers litigation over citizenship and other state registration and voting requirements under the Elections Clause following the Supreme Court’s opinion in Arizona v. Inter Tribal Council.  It also covers theSusan B. Anthony false campaign speech case.
