Federal Court Hears Voter Suppression Claims

Many of our members may be interested in following One Wisconsin Institute vs. Nichol, the case being heard before the Honorable James D. Peterson of the US District Court. 

Plaintiffs' witnesses have included LWVWI Executive Director Andrea Kaminski, Madison City Clerk Maribeth Witzel-Behl, and UW Political Science Professor Barry Burden, who spoke at the state League issues briefing last October. Still to come: UW Political Science Professor Ken Mayer, who spoke about redistricting at an LWVDC forum in 2010, and Kevin Kennedy, outgoing Director of and General Counsel for the soon-to-be-defunct Government Accountability Board. 

You can access most briefs here. This includes depositions, and expert reports.
