ACORN v. Cox

Advancement Project and co-counsel filed a lawsuit on behalf of ACORN, the Georgia State Conference of the NAACP, and several other organizations that conduct voter registration to challenge rules promulgated by the Georgia State Election Board. The rule required that completed voter registration applications be separately sealed by an applicant before being handed to a private voter registration worker and prohibit the photocopying of completed voter registration applications. In September 2006, the court preliminary enjoined the rules but dismissed the lawsuit without prejudice in 2008.
