O’Melveny’s Pro Bono Work in Voting Registration Case Noted by States News Service
June 24, 2013
On June 24, 2013, States News Service covered the US Supreme Court’s decision in Arizona v. InterTribal Council of Arizona, which struck down Arizona’s Prop. 200, and noted that lawyers from O’Melveny & Myers prepared an amicus brief for the case. According to the article, the brief was prepared in conjunction with co-counsel DEMOS, a national public policy organization focused on societal equality, and was filed on behalf of numerous community voter registration organizations, including Rock the Vote, the NAACP, Border Action Network, Fair Share Alliance, and Voto Latino. The Court’s ruling affirmed that the Arizona law was in violation of the Voter Registration Act, which “streamlines the registration process and prohibits unnecessary obstacles to voter registration.” The O’Melveny team included Washington, DC partners Walter Dellinger and Jonathan Hacker, counsel Loren AliKhan, and associates Joanna Nairn and Beth France, as well as senior paralegal Kim Grotenrath.
