Supreme Court Amicus Brief Joined by Professor Ed Larson in Texas Election Case Quoted in New York Times

An amicus brief that Professor Edward J. Larson joined in the Supreme Court case, State of Texas v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, is quoted in the New York Times article, "Two reasons the Texas election case is faulty: flawed legal theory and statistical fallacy."

Excerpt from the New York Times:

A Supreme Court brief opposing Texas' requests by prominent Republicans, including former Senator John Danforth of Missouri and former Gov. Christine Todd Whitman of New Jersey, said Texas' filings "make a mockery of federalism and separation of powers."

"It would violate the most fundamental constitutional principles for this court," the brief said, "to serve as the trial court for presidential election disputes."
