VAN HOLLEN FILES REPLY BRIEF IN SUPPORT OF SUMMARY JUDGMENT IN ELECTION INTEGRITY CASE AGAINST GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY BOARD
 

MADISON - Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen filed two briefs today in his action against the Government Accountability Board (GAB) to compel compliance with election law. Van Hollen's reply brief in support of his earlier motion for summary judgment argues that the issues presented for summary judgment may be resolved promptly:

 

"If the Court concludes, as it should, that GAB must treat all post-HAVA voter registrations in a uniform and nondiscriminatory manner," writes Assistant Attorney General Steven P. Means, "the A.G.'s Motion allows the Court to enforce the law without further delay."

 

Van Hollen also filed a response brief to a brief filed by several amici curaie. Van Hollen's brief emphasizes that election law requires the uniform and non-discriminatory treatment of voter registrations after HAVA's effective date of January 1, 2006.

 

Copies of the brief are attached.
