Motion for Leave to File Amicus Curiae Brief

Court Level
District Court

On September 12, CLC filed an amicus curiae (friend-of-the-court) brief in support of the Plaintiffs in New York Immigration Coalition, et al. v. Rensselaer County Board of Elections, et al. CLC’s brief aims to clarify the history and proper interpretation of Section 11(b) of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which prohibits voter intimidation. CLC’s brief also argues that the conduct Plaintiffs allege is a modern form of the type of conduct that Section 11(b) was designed to prohibit.
