Date Filed#Document Text
December 26, 2017 80 Opinion or Order of the Court MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER: To summarize the more-than-nine-thousand words preceding this section in a single thirty-six-word sentence: Plaintiffs challenge to Alabamas constitutional and statutory scheme for the disenfranchisement and re-enfra nchisement of individuals convicted of crimes of moral turpitude will proceed, but only on a third of the counts in Plaintiffs fifteen-count complaint. Consistent with the reasoning of this opinion, it is ORDERED as follows: (1) Counts 3, 4, 5, 14, and 15 are DISMISSED with prejudice for failure to state a claim upon which relief can be granted; and (2) Counts 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 are DISMISSED without prejudice for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction. This action proceeds as to five counts: Pla intiffs claims that section 177(b) of the Alabama Constitution is racially discriminatory in violation of the Fourteenth Amendments Equal Protection Clause and the Fifteenth Amendment (Counts 1 and 2); Plaintiffs claim that section 177(b) is an ex post facto law that retroactively punishes citizens (Count 11); Plaintiffs claim that section 177(b) violates the Eighth Amendments proscription against cruel and unusual punishment (Count 12); and Plaintiffs claim that section 15-22-36.1(a)(3) of the Alabama Code violates the Fourteenth Amendments Equal Protection Clause (Count 13). Signed by Chief Judge William Keith Watkins on 12/26/2017. (dmn, )
July 28, 2017 72 Opinion or Order of the Court MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER: Accordingly, based upon careful consideration of Plaintiffs motion for preliminary injunction, Defendants opposition, the evidentiary hearing, and the oral arguments, and the record, it is ORDERED that the motion (Doc. 56 ) is DENIED as further set out in the opinion and order. Signed by Chief Judge William Keith Watkins on 7/28/2017. (dmn, )
