Bundy Cobb v. Douglas County, State of Georgia, et al., Civil Action File No. 1:14-cv-03898-CAP
April 16, 2015
Statement by Shannon L. Goessling, executive director and chief legal counsel, Southeastern Legal Foundation:
“Today’s decisions by U.S. District Court Judge Pannell allow Mr. Cobb to amend his complaint in light of new information and facts since the original filing, which results in a dismissal of the defendants’ motion for judgment on the pleadings as moot. The defendants will be able to re-file the same motion within 21 days as it relates to the amended complaint if they choose.
We applaud the decision to move this case forward, given the serious constitutional implications of the government's actions – enforcement by a government poll worker of a custom, policy, or practice instituted by the County Elections Supervisor that prevents Douglas County, Georgia voters from voting unless they remove hats or items of clothing that have the NRA logo on them.”
