The ACLU of Pennsylvania, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the ACLU’s Voting Rights Project, and Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP, on behalf of Common Cause Pennsylvania and the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania, filed a motion to intervene in the federal lawsuit, Judicial Watch v. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In the case, a pro-voter purge group is seeking to force three Pennsylvania counties to remove thousands of voters from the rolls before the upcoming election. By filing a motion to intervene, Common Cause Pennsylvania and the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania seek to protect eligible Pennsylvania voters who are at risk of being wrongfully purged from the rolls by this calculated lawsuit.
