Supreme Court Rejects Radical Re-Write of Constitution in Evenwel Redistricting Case

The plaintiffs sought an unprecedented change to the U.S. Constitution forbidding states from using census counts of total population and requiring them to draw districts with equal number of voters. The City of Atlanta joined a brief Common Cause organized along with 18 other counties and cities across the country to oppose this change. Atlanta attorney and Common Cause National Governing Board member Emmet Bondurant drafted a second brief that Common Cause signed.
