Appeals Court Overturns District Court Ruling, 

Calls for Preliminary Injunction on Key Parts of North Carolina Voter Suppression Law

A Statement from Advancement Project

WASHINGTON - The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals today overturned a district court's decision to deny a preliminary injunction of key parts of North Carolina's H.B. 589, a massive voter suppression law. The three-judge panel, with one judge dissenting, ruled in favor of the North Carolina State Conference of the NAACP, the League of Women Voters and other plaintiffs who sought to block certain provisions of the law from being effect for the upcoming November elections. The court ordered an immediate preliminary injunction to block two provisions - the elimination of same-day registration and the prohibition of out-of-precinct ballots from being counted - from taking effect in November's election. Advancement Project, which represents the NC NAACP with co-counsel Kirkland & Ellis LLP, as well as North Carolina lawyers Adam Stein and Irving Joyner, issued the following statement in response to the decision:

North Carolina NAACP to Hold Press Conference 

Addressing Major Victory for Voting Rights

 

 

DURHAM, NC: The North Carolina NAACP will hold a press conference at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 2, 2014 to address the decision handed down this afternoon by the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals. The decision granted a preliminary injunction against provisions in the new voting law that eliminated same-day registration and out-of-precinct voting.

 

Atty. Irving Joyner, the NC NAACP Legal Redress Chair, and Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, will discuss how this decision will affect the upcoming November election. 
 

"We can rejoice in the knowledge that the efforts of right-wing forces in the North Carolina General Assembly to suppress the rights and opportunities for racial minorities to vote have been exposed," Rev. Dr. Barber said. "This is not just a legal victory but a victory of the Forward Together Moral Movement activism and legal action combined."

 

"This is among the most significant voting rights victories in North Carolina history and has immediate implications for the election in North Carolina, a little over a month away," said Atty. Joyner. "This decision amounts to a repudiation of the actions of the North Carolina General Assembly, which has attempted to make access to voting more difficult." 

 

Atty. Joyner and Rev. Dr. Barber will discuss the NC NAACP's strategy going forward and what it expects to face from the extremist right in the wake of the 4th Circuit Court's ruling.
