Merrill v. Milligan: United States Supreme Court – CLC Amicus Brief

Court Level
Supreme Court

On July 18, 2022, Campaign Legal Center (CLC) filed a friend-of-the-court brief in the U.S. Supreme Court in Merrill v. Milligan, urging the court to affirm the trial court’s decision finding that Alabama’s congressional redistricting plan violates Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. CLC’s brief specifically urges the court to reject Alabama’s argument that Section 2 is unconstitutional and offered numerous alternative maps by which Alabama can eliminate the dilution of Black voters' electoral strength while also satisfying the state’s other designated policy priorities.
