Law Quadrangle (formerly Law Quad Notes)


Ellen D. Katz


Professor Ellen D. Katz writes and teaches about election law, civil rights and remedies, and equal protection. She and the Voting Rights Initiative at Michigan Law filed a brief as amicus curiae in Shelby County v. Holder, on which the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments February 27. Here, she examines why Section 2 of the Voting Rights act bears consideration in the case, which involves a challenge to Section 5 of the act.
