|Bettye Stitts Jones was a life-long fighter for civil rights |
whose battle has been joined. She was the lead plaintiff in
League of United Latin American Citizens of Wisconsin et al
v. Deininger et al (Case 2:12-cv-00185) before passing away
on October 31, 2012, a life lived for justice and love.
Ms. Jones passed away October 31, 2012, so naturally Republicans tried to get the voter obstruction case tossed out of federal court on jurisdictional grounds.
The Republicans failed.
The case is now known as League of United Latin American Citizens of Wisconsin et al v. Deininger et al (Case 2:12-cv-00185), and will proceed under section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, as ordered by Judge Lynn Adelman.
Bettye Stitts Jones will no longer be a named plaintiff in this civil rights action, but her work and spirit will be present in the Milwaukee court room on November 4.
