North Carolina Racial Gerrymandering

August 10, 2020

Secured a victory in the U.S. Supreme Court on May 22, 2017 on behalf of North Carolina voters seeking to invalidate North Carolina’s 1st and 12th Congressional Districts as racial gerrymanders in violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The Supreme Court, in an opinion authored by Justice Kagan, upheld the district court’s judgment that the North Carolina General Assembly had unlawfully used race to draw congressional districts.
