In The Root, LDF Assistant Counsel Leah Aden announces LDF’s return to court due to Fayette County’s continued defense of racially biased voting plans in federal court appeal:

“Despite this progress, Fayette County continues to defend its racially discriminatory method of election, having appealed the federal court’s ruling and continuing to impose on Fayette taxpayers the costs (so far estimated to be around $1 million) of that defense.”
