Regarding the DOJ suing Georgia for their election laws

Last edited Fri Jun 25, 2021, 11:56 PM - Edit history (1)

If I understand correctly when something like that is contested, a judge will usually grant a stay to stop the new law from going into effect until all legal challenges are exhausted. Does this mean that even if the DOJ does not win outright, it can run the clock until the 2022 elections where they would have to use the previous laws if the new one has a stay on it?

1. Yes, it's very possible the courts will stay the implementation of the laws

2. It is complicated but there will be a TRO or Temporary Injunction hearing on these provisions

There is a principle that one does not change election rules close to an election which is why we need to get this hearing scheduled as soon as possible.
