Ending Partisan Gerrymandering: Rucho v. League of Women Voters of North Carolina
A pile of U.S. state maps

Campaign Legal Center and the Southern Coalition for Social Justice is representing the League of Women Voters of North Carolina, as well as numerous individual voters who have challenged the state’s congressional district lines as an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander. Our case seeks to establish that the North Carolina congressional plan enacted in February 2016 violates the 1st and 14th Amendments of the United States Constitution.

This case is a lawsuit over the FEC’s delay in enforcing federal campaign finance law against GEO Group, one of America’s largest private prison companies, which illegally made $225,000 in contributions to a super PAC supporting then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016. By filing this suit, CLC is hoping to compel the FEC to act on our FEC complaint, which alleges that the contributions — made through a wholly-owned subsidiary, GEO Corrections Holdings, Inc. — violated the ban on federal contractors giving money in federal elections. 

Restoring Voting Rights: Thompson v. Merrill
Plaintiff Ann Reynolds, disenfranchised voter, with attorney Danielle Lang

CLC represents individuals in Alabama who are U.S. citizens with past felony convictions, seeking the right to vote. Some are unable to vote because their convictions are considered "disqualifying" under Alabama's law, and others because they cannot afford to pay their court fees to restore their right vote.
