NAACP v. Lowe (G. Kendall Sharp, M.D. Fla. 6:04-cv-1469)
On October 7, 2004, African-American voters filed a federal action complaining that the county’s only early voting location was not convenient for African-American voters on the county’s east side. On the following day, the plaintiffs filed a motion for a preliminary injunction and expedited discovery, and the district judge set a hearing on the motion for 11 days later. Before the hearing occurred, however, the county agreed to open additional early voting locations, so the parties stipulated to a dismissal of the action. The judge ruled that no more than one location was legally required, but the opening of additional sites mooted the case.
