How Stuff Works: Jonathan Entin, the David L. Brennan Professor Emeritus of Law and adjunct professor of political science, said that the Supreme Court’s pending decision in Harper v. Moore may reverberate beyond the issue of gerrymandering. “Although this is not squarely an issue in the case, presumably if they can persuade the Supreme Court that the legislature has unfettered discretion to draw the maps, it also gives the state legislature the unfettered discretion to decide how to award the electoral votes in the presidential election,” Entin said.
