Justice Stevens Discusses Columbia Law School Magazine Article

Spring 2012

During an episode of Charlie Rose this past fall, former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens referenced the recent Columbia Law School Magazine cover story on redistricting. When Rose asked him what legal issues are foremost in his mind, Stevens cited the magazine, explaining that the article had him thinking about the legal implications of partisan gerrymandering. The story, which appeared in this magazine’s fall 2011 issue, focused on Professor Nathaniel Persily’s course and how his students created a variety of redistricting maps for all 50 states.
