Defending Jurisdictions in Voting Rights Act Claims


Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 prohibits state and local voting processes that result in a denial of the right to vote on account of race. See, 52 U.S.C. § 10301.

Voting Rights cases are extremely complex and labor-intensive. Plaintiffs use expert analysis to allege the challenged electoral system results in unintentional discrimination against minority voters.  The evidence often turns on mathematical methodologies that infer voters’ behavior over a series of elections.  Defendants must be adept at understanding and utilizing the same methodologies to conduct their own analysis.

Defendants are often playing catch-up from the beginning.  Plaintiffs can spend years gathering and analyzing evidence before filing their Complaint.  Defendants can be caught off guard by a voluminous filing containing esoteric allegations.  The allegations are especially challenging for defendants that are new to the voting rights inferential methodologies.
