Friend of the Court Brief - Alexander v. South Carolina State Conference of NAACP

On August 18, CLC joined a friend-of-the-court brief filed by Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law and other voting rights organizations urging the Supreme Court to uphold a lower court’s ruling striking down South Carolina's 1st Congressional District as a racial gerrymander. The brief asks the Court to reject South Carolina’s argument that its hands are clean because its motivation for moving thousands of Black voters out of CD 1 was partisan.
