U.S. District Court Sanctions Texas for Ignoring Court Deadlines in Voter Registration Lawsuit

Thanks to Richard Winger of Ballot Access News for this post.

On February 16th, U.S. District Court Judge Orlando Garcia, a Clinton appointee, sanctioned Texas State Government for failing to follow Court Orders to produce certain pieces of evidence.

The Case is Stringer v Pablos, w.d., SA-16-CA-257.

The issue is whether Texas is or is not complying with the Federal Motor Voter Law.

Plaintiffs say that many individuals Register to Vote at Department of Motor Vehicle offices, or update their Voter Registration, and yet those applications don’t get processed.

Plaintiffs asked for certain kinds of evidence from the State, and the State was supposed to produce them by September 24th, 2016, but the State got permission to instead submit the documents by January 17th.

But, that deadline passed without any production of the documents.
