Equal Protection and the Rehnquist Court: Compounding a Legacy of Constitutional Vagrancy
Toledo Law Review
This essay will (1) examine the Rehnquist Court's equal protection renderings within the historical context of racial jurisprudence; (2) consider the theoretical potential for doctrinal development accounting for racial injustice; and (3) trace a likely path of further equal protection devolution that most probably will define the Rehnquist Court's legacy.
