Holwell Shuster & Goldberg and the Brennan Center for Justice Submit Amicus Brief in Second Major Redistricting Case Before U.S. Supreme Court
New York—Holwell Shuster & Goldberg LLP and the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law filed an amicus brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in Benisek v. Lamone, a significant redistricting case challenging the legitimacy of political gerrymandering in Maryland. The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral argument in the case on March 28, 2018.
The full brief, which was submitted by HSG attorneys Vincent Levy, Gregory Dubinsky, and Matthew V.H. Noller, is available here. Levy and Dubinsky are both former U.S. Supreme Court clerks.
This is the second major partisan gerrymandering case the Supreme Court will review this year, and the second case in which HSG has filed a brief. In September 2017, HSG represented a group of 65 current and former state legislators from both major political parties as amici in Gill v. Whitford. The brief, available here, also asked the Supreme Court to invalidate the practice of political gerrymandering.
