Andrew Grossman Writes, Speaks About Oral Arguments in Evenwel v. Abbott Voting Rights Case

Articles / December 9, 2015

Associate Andrew Grossman authored an article published December 8, 2015, by The Federalist Society for Law & Public Policy studies. In the article, “A Strong Showing for Evenwel Plaintiffs in One-Person, One-Vote Argument,” Grossman writes about the oral arguments heard by the U.S. Supreme Court on December 8, 2015, in Evenwel v. Abbott. He recaps the arguments of both parties, the questions from the Justices, and concludes:

The outcome is impossible to predict. The Court’s liberals appeared set against the plaintiffs’ vote-equality argument, while Justice Alito seemed to be on the other side. Justice Thomas and (uncharacteristically) Scalia were silent, although Thomas has previously expressed sympathy for the plaintiffs’ position. And in the middle are Justice Kennedy and Chief Justice Roberts, whose compromise view has a chance, and perhaps even more than that, of prevailing.

Grossman also participated in a Federalist Society teleforum on the same topic.
