Voting Rights Moot Court - County of Los Angeles v. California

UCLA School of Law, Room 1310, Los Angeles, CA

Join superstar litigator Laura Brill (Founder of the Civics Center, Partner at Kendall Brill Kelly, and former clerk to RBG) as she moots her arguments in the redistricting case County of Los Angeles v. California, to be heard by the California Court of Appeals later this month. The California legislature passed a law providing that LA County has to have an independent commission do its redistricting beginning in 2020. At the same time, the legislature passed a law allowing other counties to continue to conduct redistricting by their supervisors, to have an independent commission, or to have a hybrid advisory commission. Ms. Brill represents the County, which contends among other things, that the statute violates the California constitutional provision restricting "special" and "local" laws.
