Court Level
District Court

Campaign Legal Center (CLC) and the UCLA Voting Rights Project (UCLA VRP) filed a supplemental complaint to an ongoing lawsuit alleging that Galveston County continues to discriminate against and dilute the voting strength of Black and Latino voters in denying them the opportunity to elect candidates of their choice in countywide offices. This lawsuit dates back to 2013, and CLC and UCLA VRP have joined the lawsuit to challenge the ongoing discrimination in the wake of the 2021 redistricting in the county.
