Rob Wiygul and John Hill authored “Supreme Court’s NC Election Map Ruling Protects Pa. Voters” for Law360. In the article, Rob and John take a look at the possible implications for Pennsylvania voting and elections from the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Moore v. Harper. The decision is notable for its rejection of the “independent state legislature” theory, as the Court found that the U.S. Constitution’s elections clause does not insulate state legislatures from state judicial review. The article highlights Pennsylvania’s free and equal elections clause (similiar to North Carolina, the state in question in the suit) and how state courts have relied on the clause to respond to election-related legal issues.
