Sarah Chen Reflects on Galveston County Redistricting Plan after Milligan

Sarah Chen (’21), current Fellow with the Texas Civil Rights Project, was quoted by CNN discussing the effect of the Supreme Court’s Milligan decision on current redistricting litigation in Texas (“Voting Rights Advocates in the South Emboldened by Supreme Court Win,” June 12). “If anything, we no longer need to make adjustments that we had potentially been preparing for because the state of the law remains unchanged. . . . The Supreme Court did not endorse the radical changes proposed by Alabama in their arguments, the same changes that are also endorsed by opposing counsel in this Galveston redistricting matter.”
