Veasey v. Perry (Abbott): True the Vote's Motion to Expedite the Appeal or Stay Proceedings
This appeal arises from the district court’s denial of True the Vote’s motion to intervene as a matter of right. (ROA.1357) (Ex. A). The United States brought this lawsuit to enjoin and invalidate Texas’ Voter ID law, SB 14, under section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. (ROA.6055) TEX. ELEC. CODE § 630101. The case was consolidated with other lawsuits brought by individuals, organizations, and public interest groups who also seek the same result under the Constitution as well as the Voting Rights Act. (ROA.165, 1300).
