Lawsuit Seeking House Elections This November Dismissed!
On Monday, August 1, U.S. District Judge David Novak granted a motion to dismiss the lawsuit seeking 2022 Virginia House elections with updated districts. Judge Novak ruled that the plaintiffs – author Jeff Thomas, Loudoun County NAACP President Rev. Michelle Thomas and attorney Phillip Thompson – lack standing and that the Eastern District of Virginia “lacks subject matter jurisdiction.” @8NEWS reported that Thomas has said he won’t appeal the decision. The House will now be up for election again on new maps in 2023.
