Brennan, Civil Rights, and the “Personal Stake” Gambit
This chapter focuses on William Brennan. In Baker v. Carr, the landmark decision that opened the door to “one man, one vote,” the Court all but overruled Frankfurter's majority opinion in Colegrove v. Green. Not only did Baker play a pivotal role in the judicial protection of the civil rights movement, it marked the ascendancy of Justice William Brennan to a position of power within the Warren Court. Some of the language from Brennan's opinion in Baker laid the seeds for the conservative counterrevolution in justiciability law in the 1970s and 1980s.
