“ACLU threatens lawsuit after Florida GOP tries to delay implementing voting rights ballot initiative”

Stephen Wolf:

The ACLU’s response to the news strongly suggests the organization will sue to force DeSantis and Florida officials to stop stalling and automatically restore voting rights. However, they may not get a welcome reception if their case ultimately makes it to Florida’s Supreme Court, which seems a probable endgame. That’s because DeSantis will get to appoint replacements for three liberal-leaning justices who face mandatory retirement just hours after he’s sworn in as governor, which will flip the court to a six-to-one conservative majority. That’s no guarantee a lawsuit will fail, but things remain very much in limbo.
