Jones v. DeSantis – 11th Circuit Court of Appeals: Amicus Brief by Cato Institute and R Street


Libertarian think tanks Cato Institute and R Street Institute, together with the Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection at Georgetown University Law Center, filed a friend of the court brief in support of voting rights. The groups argue that SB-7066’s requirement conditioning rights restoration on payment of LFOs is bad policy and violates the Fourteenth Amendment. The brief also argues that felony disenfranchisement is anti-democratic.
