District Court

The Spirit Lake Nation, Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians and individual Native voters filed suit in federal court in North Dakota alleging that North Dakota’s 2021 state legislative map violates Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act by cracking and packing Native voters in the northeastern part of the state, denying those voters’ an equal opportunity to elect candidates of choice to the North Dakota legislature. Campaign Legal Center (CLC), Native American Rights Fund (NARF) and the Law Offices of Bryan Sells represent the plaintiffs in their suit, and Robins Kaplan LLP represents the Spirit Lake Tribe.
