WhatleyKallas continues to be active in the important case of Lewis v. Governor of Alabama, where we are attempting to allow the City of Birmingham to implement its increased minimum wage law over the efforts of the State Legislature.  In its latest issue, the Harvard Law Review included a Note on the Lewis v. Governor of Alabama case, which is challenging the State’s action striking down Birmingham’s Minimum Wage Ordinance. The Note begins by recognizing that: “In 1901, Alabama adopted a state constitution — still in effect today — the express purpose of which was the reification of white supremacy.”  The time has come – indeed it came long ago – for the leadership of the State of Alabama to replace that Constitution.
