CASE ENTRY

M.S. v. Brown

In 2014, Oregon voters rejected a ballot initiative that would have allowed residents to obtain drivers’ licenses without showing proof of their legal presence in the country. (No such requirement existed until 2008, when it was added to comply with the federal REAL ID Act). Plaintiffs: Voters were motivated by animus against Mexicans and Central Americans; state officials’ subsequent refusal to issue such licenses violates equal protection and due process. Ninth Circuit: Case dismissed.
