“One could imagine that there will be judges in other parts of the country that don’t think it’s proper for law for the entire country to be set by a single district court judge,” says Brianne Gorod, chief counsel for the Constitutional Accountability Center, a public-interest law firm and think tank in Washington.
“The implications for the upcoming presidential election are huge,” said David Gans, director of the Human Rights, Civil Rights & Citizenship Program at the Constitutional Accountability Center. “Since the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act in the case of Shelby County v. Holder in 2013, we have seen a wave of new legislation that makes it harder for racial minorities and others to exercise their constitutional right to vote,” Gans further told the AFRO.
CAC's David Gans appeared on U Need 2 Know with host Frank Knapp to discuss the cases decided in the last week of the Supreme Court's Term.
He “takes an evidence-driven approach. He wants to understand how the world works and how the law operates given the realities on the ground,” said Brianne Gorod, counsel for the Constitutional Accountability Center and former law clerk for Breyer.
