Parkinson v. Watson

In Parkinson v. Watson, 4 Utah 2d 191, 291 P.2d 400 (Utah 1955), the Supreme Court of Utah considered legislation that allowed for representation in the state Legislature disproportionate to the number of residents of each district. The court upheld the legislation, refusing to disturb the balance of power which, according to the court, "has contributed greatly to the success of our system of government and to the strength of the judiciary itself." Parkinson, 291 P.2d at 403.
