Anita Earls is passionate about protecting voting rights.
Earls litigated and won:
- Covington v. North Carolina, in which the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously affirmed that the state’s legislative district maps were unconstitutional racial gerrymanders, and a lower court ordered those districts redrawn by a nonpartisan Special Master
- League of Women Voters v. Rucho, in which a three-judge federal panel ruled that the state’s U.S. congressional district maps are unconstitutional partisan gerrymanders. The case is currently under appeal.
