Practice Area: Civil Rights
In 2012, our firm represented former Congressman Lincoln Davis in a Civil Court case after the State of Tennessee improperly purged him from its voter rolls and prevented him from voting in the March 6, 2012 primary election. As a result of the lawsuit, the State of Tennessee entered into a consent decree requiring a Special Master to investigate and review over 11,000 suspect voter histories and enforcing several procedural checks on the State and on all 95 county election commissions.
Through this civil rights case and numerous others, Barrett Johnston Martin & Garrison has regularly fought to protect the right to vote and to ensure the broadest possible access to the polls.
