Professor Ian Bartrum Quoted in Las Vegas Sun

Ian Bartrum is an Associate Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

Professor Bartrum recently spoke to the Las Vegas Sun about the same-sex marriage ban and the Coalition for the Protection of Marriage group’s request for a rehearing in an Oct. 13 article titled "Group trying to revive Nevada's same-sex marriage ban."

In the article, Professor Bartrum stated “… a rehearing by the full 9th Circuit Court of Appeals would require a majority vote of nonrecused, active judges… The number of judges who are recused may have an effect on the outcome of the rehearing vote.” In the end, however, Professor Bartrum still believed “the full appeals court will likely agree with last week’s decision.”

Professor Bartrum's research interests are in constitutional history and theory, the Establishment Clause, and constitutional education.
