Madison's Capital Times newspaper ran a front page profile of CWPB partner Lester Pines today. The article highlights Lester's acumen as a trial lawyer, the respect he has earned from others in the legal community, and the Firm's recent successes in enjoining three unconstitutional laws enacted in the 2011 legislative session: the Wisconsin Voter ID law, the collective bargaining law, and the administrative rules law.
Attorney Susan Crawford presented an update on the League of Women Voter's legal challenge to the Wisconsin Voter ID law to a group of over 50 attorneys at an informational session held in Madison on August 22, 2012. The session, coordinated by Obama for America, trained and prepared attorneys to serve as volunteer election observers. Susan presented an overview of the provisions of 2011 Wisconsin Act 23, which requires Wisconsin voters to show a photo ID in order to vote; explained the legal theory of the League of Women Voter's constitutional challenge to the law; and provided a procedural history of the litigation to date. Pines Bach is proud to be representing the League in this challenge. August 2012.
