Inequities in Districting for Congress: Baker v. Carr and Colegrove v. Green, 72 YALE L.J. 13 (1962)
The opinion announcing the judgment in Colegrove v. Green has sometimes
been treated with a deference insufficiently shaded by recognition that
the circumstances under which it was uttered deprived it of authority. This
would not matter much if the opinion satisfactorily dealt with the narrower
and wider issues in Colegrove. With respect, it is submitted that it did not.
