Rights Restoration


Restoration of Ex-Felons’ Voting Rights (2016)

In June 2016, the Fair Elections Legal Network and Jenner & Block filed an amicus brief in the challenge to the Virginia ex-felon restoration order, Howell v. McAuliffe, which was filed in the Supreme Court of Virginia. We argued that the voters and individual legislators who brought the petition for writs of mandamus and prohibition do not have standing and the case should be dismissed.
