Covid-19 and the Federal Judiciary: Research Resources

Topical Webpages

A global infectious pandemic triggered changes in election procedures. It also triggered litigation over election procedures. Some of the cases filed in federal courts required emergency action by the court, and the case-management challenges posed by these cases are described in the sixty-five case studies posted here. This page is part of the Federal Judicial Center’s special topics website on election litigation, which includes several hundred additional case studies of emergency election litigation in federal courts. The site also includes FJC publications on certain election law statutes and a bibliography of election law scholarship.
