Professor Ed Larson, "Why the Supreme Court Should Ponder Presidents' Day and the First Gerrymander" -- The Hill
Professor Edward J. Larson's opinion article, "Why the Supreme Court Should Ponder Presidents' Day and the First Gerrymander," is published in The Hill. The article considers the arguments in the Supreme Court voting rights case, Moore v. Harper, which originated from the legal fight over whether North Carolina's Supreme Court has the power to invalidate the congressional map drawn by North Carolina's Republican legislature.
Excerpt from "Why the Supreme Court Should Ponder Presidents' Day and the First Gerrymander"

State legislatures are not independent institutions, but instead creatures of their duly adopted state constitutions.
