League of Women Voters of Tennessee v. Tre Hargett - Motion for Preliminary Injunction

Court Level
District Court

On behalf of a group of community, civic, and labor organizations, CLC is challenging Tennessee’s recently enacted Law regulating voter registration activities. The Law intentionally restricts the rights of our Plaintiffs and similarly situated organizations to assist eligible Tennessee residents in registering to vote. The Law goes into effect on October 1, but it has already had a substantial impact on our Plaintiffs, and will continue to impose a substantial burden on their ability to engage in mission-critical outreach to engage their communities and members to ensure they are able to register and vote in Tennessee. As such, CLC and its co-counsel have filed a motion asking the court to block the law from going into effect until it issues a final judgment on the merits of Plaintiffs’ claims.
