Lawrence Lessig Talks About Taking the Electoral College to Court

T.J. is joined by two prominent election reform attorneys: Lawrence Lessig with Equal Citizens and Chad Peace with the Independent Voter Project.

They discuss their latest reform lawsuits and projects, breaking down each case into its ‘elevator pitch’.

Lawrence Lessig is the Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership at Harvard Law School. He is also the founder of Equal Citizens, which recently launched Equal Votes, a legal fight against the winner-take-all method of allocating Electoral Votes in presidential elections.

Chad Peace is a nationally recognized leader in election law and voter rights. He serves as the attorney for the Independent Voter Project, and developed the voter outreach strategy for California’s successful nonpartisan primary initiative.

Most recently, he authored the City of San Diego’s Measure K, and just Friday filed an amicus brief on behalf of Level the Playing Field in the lawsuit challenging the Commission on Presidential Debates.
