Michael Kent Curtis is one of the foremost constitutional historians in the United States.

Professor Michael Curtis is quoted in the following story, “NC Gerrymandering court cases and protests,” published by the The Carolinian on March 22, 2017.

An excerpt follows:

Michael Curtis, a professor at Wake Forest University’s School of Law, has commented on the current state of NC’s redistricting movements as well.

“A bipartisan redistricting committee would be a step in the right direction, and surely better than the system currently being used for redistricting,” Curtis said in an article from NC Policy Watch. “The legislators pick the voters instead of the other way around. When people gerrymander, it’s a way of rigging the election.”
