DNC v. Bostellman

WILL Amicus: State Legislature Should Have Standing to Defend State Law When Attorney General Doesn’t Defend It

WILL filed an amicus brief arguing that the Legislature must be permitted to defend state law in federal court when others, typically charged with doing so, do not. The Wisconsin Supreme Court agreed in a 4-3 decision. Proving the importance of that ruling, shortly after the Court’s decision, the Seventh Circuit stayed the District Court’s ruling, restoring Wisconsin’s election laws prior to the November election.
