PILF Praises SCOTUS on Texas Redistricting Maps

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – June 25, 2018: The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) today released a statement praising the Supreme Court’s decision to largely uphold Texas’ redistricting maps.

“Today’s decision again demonstrates how the Obama DOJ was wrong to target Texas for its voting laws and redistricting maps,” PILF President and General Counsel J. Christian Adams said. “Just like it had done in the Texas voter ID case and even the Ohio list maintenance matter, the Sessions DOJ’s course corrections were necessary and justified. The Obama DOJ seemed to find racial discrimination everywhere and spent millions of tax dollars chasing it. The Supreme Court is wise to help close this chapter.”

Adams previously co-signed a letter in 2017 calling for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to select effective Civil Rights Division leadership that would end the “ideological rot” tainting law enforcement decisions there.

Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) is a 501(c)(3) public interest law firm dedicated to election integrity. The Foundation exists to assist states and others to aid the cause of election integrity and fight against lawlessness in American elections. Drawing on numerous experts in the field, PILF seeks to protect the right to vote and preserve the Constitutional framework of American elections.
