Georgia Voter Suppression Law Challenge (Consolidated Case)

In re: Georgia Senate Bill 202

Consolidated lawsuit consisting of six lawsuits challenging Georgia’s omnibus voter suppression law, Senate Bill 202. In the aftermath of the 2020 election, Georgia Republicans passed S.B. 202 which places numerous restrictions on mail-in voting, changes early voting and barrs individuals and groups from giving out food or drinks to voters waiting in line to vote.

After the passage of S.B. 202, these six lawsuits — New Georgia Project v. Raffensperger, Georgia State Conference of the NAACP v. Raffensperger, Sixth District of the AME Church v. Kemp, Asian Americans Advancing Justice Atlanta v. Raffensperger, Concerned Black Clergy v. Raffensperger, United States v. Georgia — were filed and all consolidated under this case, In re: Georgia Senate Bill 202. The cases argue that the new law violates federal laws including the Voting and Civil Rights Acts as well as the U.S. Constitution. Republicans intervened to defend the omnibus voter suppression law. 

STATUS: Litigation is ongoing in both the district court and the 11th Circuit.
