Sep 10, 2021

AUSTIN, Texas -- The nation’s largest and oldest Latino civil rights organization has filed a federal lawsuit in hopes of preventing a sweeping new Texas voting law signed earlier this week by Gov. Greg Abbott from going into effect.

The lawsuit, filed by lawyers for the League of United Latin American Citizens in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas in Austin, names El Paso County elections director Lisa Wise along with elections officials in Bexar, Harris, Hidalgo, Travis and Dallas counties as defendants.
