Legal Questions on the Con-Con

Professor Karl Mannheim of Loyola and two of his colleagues raise some interesting issues on the con-con initiatives in this op-ed from the Los Angeles Times. Among them: whether the measure's limits on the con-con's scope are constitutional and whether permitting the voters to call a convention is a "revision." I think the answer to the first question is "yes" and the answer to the second is "no."

In my (strictly layperson's)opinion, the real question about limits on the subject matter is not whether they are constitutional but whether violations would be held to be justiciable or, instead, political questions.
