II. Federal-State Updates
U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly ruled that the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity must give Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap (D) access to relevant documents in order to allow him “fully participate” in the panel’s review. "In the Court’s view, his assertion that he will be unable to fully participate without the information contained in relevant documents that the Commission has not shared with the public has merit."
In another PACEI court ruling, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has upheld a lower court’s ruling to allow PACEI to continue its work and collect voter data from the states. The three-judge panel ruled unanimously that the plaintiff, the Electronic Privacy Information Center, did not have legal standing because it is not an individual voter.
