Proponents' Challenge to Title and Description of Missouri Anti-Affirmative Action Initiative
A challenge by the so-called Missouri Civil Rights Initiative to the Secretary of State's revision of their misleading ballot title. The petition in question is one of a series of anti-affirmative action initiatives being forwarded in 5 states for the fall of 2008, but was deceptively billed as a ban on "discrimination" and "preferences." The Secretary of State revised the title to notify voters of the petition's likely impact on affirmative action.
