Democratic National Committee asks federal judges to dismiss case on Alabama party infighting

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The Democratic National Committee has asked a federal appeals court to dismiss a case centered on Alabama party infighting that could test the requirements of the Voting Rights Act. Randy Kelley asked a federal judge in 2021 to declare that party bylaws enacted two years before violated the Voting Rights Act and a decades-old consent decree meant to ensure Black representation. The DNC argued Thursday that the lawsuit should be dismissed because Kelley is now the head of the state party and because new bylaws have been enacted.
