Nashville v. Tennessee

Nashville, Tennessee is an example of overt political retaliation by a GOP-controlled state legislature against a Democratic city. The Metropolitan Council of Nashville had voted not to host the 2024 GOP National Convention in the city, so in response, the legislature cut the city council size in half. It did so in a way that feels familiar: It passed a facially neutral law that ostensibly applies to all city or city-county governments, but only Nashville is actually affected by it.
