The Federalist Society’s SCOTUScast talks with Partner Thor Hearne about Harris Case Post-Decision

The Federalist Society recently asked Arent Fox partner Thor Hearne to discuss his Supreme Court case, Harris vs. Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission, and the possible ramifications of the April 2016 deciding outcome. The case came about with the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission’s decision to redraw the map for the state legislative districts, based on the results of the 2010 census, and backlash from Wesley Harris and other individual voters that claimed the newly redrawn districts violated the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
