Trump DOJ Opposes Plaintiffs’ Further Remedies in Texas Voter ID Case

DOJ’s position: Now that Texas passed a new law softening its voter id law, there’s nothing more the court should do. No need to find Texas acted with a discriminatory purpose, no need for an injunction, further judicial supervision, or preclearance (though the U.S. “reserves the right” to present to the court its position on whether Texas should be put back under preclearance at a later date—pretty clear from this that the U.S.’s answer will be “no”).
