League of Women Voters of Tennessee v. Tre Hargett: Opposition to Motion to Dismiss

Court Level
District Court

On July 19, 2019, CLC, along with its co-counsel, filed a response to the state of Tennessee's motion to dismiss the Plaintiffs’ amended complaint challenging the state's new voter registration law, known as House Bill 1079-Senate Bill 971. The response explains that the Court has jurisdiction to adjudicate the Plaintiffs' claims, and that the Plaintiffs have adequately alleged that the new law violates their constitutional rights under the First and Fourteenth Amendments by burdening their voter registration activity.
