Civil Rights Groups Applaud the New York Attorney General’s Intervention in Lawsuit Against New York City Board of Elections

Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law

WASHINGTON - The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law (Lawyers’ Committee), together with Common Cause/New York, LatinoJustice PRLDEF and the law firm of Dechert LLP, applaud New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman for filing a motion to intervene in their lawsuit against the New York City Board of Elections (NYC BOE).

The New York Attorney General’s motion comes on the heels of U.S. District Court Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis granting the U.S. Department of Justice’s separate motion to intervene. DOJ filed its motion on January 12, and Judge Garaufis granted it on January 18.
