Professor Nate Persily’s Analysis of 2007-2008 Election Law Decision of U.S. Supreme Court

February 2nd, 2009

Columbia Law School Professor Nathaniel Persily has this interesting article about the U.S. Supreme Court’s election law decisions in the terms covering the latter part of 2007, and all of 2008. Thanks to Rick Hasen’s Electionlawblog for the link. The article is 31 pages. Especially interesting is the “Regulation of Political Parties” section of the article, which begins on page 23. It says, “The Rehnquist Court’s decisions concerning the rights of political parties tended to follow two themes. The first was a general disregard for minor parties’ claims either for ballot access or other associational rights. The second was robust protection for major parties’ rights.”
