Grant v. Raffensperger
No. 1:22-cv-00122 (N.D. Ga.)

Plaintiffs filed a motion for a preliminary injunction on Jan. 13, 2022, while Georgia moved to the dismiss the lawsuit on Jan. 14, 2022. The Court denied the motion to dismiss on Jan. 28, 2022 and denied the motion for preliminary injunction on Feb. 28, 2022. By denying the preliminary injunction the Court allowed the new maps to be used for the 2022 election cycle.
