US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit Opinions
Keyes v. Gunn
Opinion Date: May 11, 2018
Judge: E. Grady Jolly
Areas of Law: Election Law
Five voters filed suit against defendants, alleging that they had been disqualified in an election in violation of their rights under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The Fifth Circuit held that this appeal presented a state election contest for a legislative seat and thus the court lacked subject matter jurisdiction. Accordingly, the court dismissed the appeal.
