Elizabeth Warren’s First Law Review Article Blasted an Anti-Busing Court Ruling
Warren was ahead of her times on bussing.
But on the sidelines of the re-litigated fight over busing — and off the stage that second night — was another candidate who waded into the busing debate in the 1970s on the opposite side of Biden: Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.In her first law review article, published in 1975 in the Rutgers Law Review and recently unearthed by CNN’s KFile, Warren sharply criticized a Supreme Court ruling in the case Milliken v. Bradley, writing that it made it easier for school districts to stop busing students in northern cities. Warren’s law review article sheds light on a previously unexplored early career stance on busing that contrasts with Biden’s approach during the same time period. Biden defended his past position in an exclusive interview with CNN this week.
