(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – October 11, 2018: The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) today praised the Senate confirmation of Eric Dreiband as the next U.S. Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights.
“At long last, the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department will have a Senate confirmed leader who cares about the rule of law,” PILF President and General Counsel J. Christian Adams said. “For more than a year, we’ve seen the Division under General Sessions make much needed course corrections on voter ID and registration list maintenance. Under Dreiband, we will hopefully see broad enforcement of the Voting Rights Act and National Voter Registration Act going forward.
“Mr. Dreiband will inherit a Division that has seen multiple federal courts scold lawyers for misconduct or bringing abusive cases in past administrations. The American people expect Justice Department lawyers to tell the truth, follow the law, and protect civil rights rather than infringe them.”
