Discriminatory Victory

Brazil & Dunn Secures Victory Over Texas' Discriminatory Voter ID Law

In a historic ruling, the Fifth Circuit in a 9-6 decision struck down Texas' Voter ID Law, SB14, finding the law had a discriminatory effect on minority voters in violation of the Voting Rights Act. Chad Dunn, representing the lead Plaintiffs, argued the case before the en banc panel in May. The case is now remanded to the District Court for a remedy to ensure equal access to voting for the upcoming November Presidential Election.

The extensive opinion detailing the discriminatory nature of the law can be found here.
