Matthew Haverstick, Managing Partner and a member of the Firm’s Litigation Department was quoted in The Legal Intelligencer on outstanding election disputes and the potential for litigation following Pennsylvania’s midterm election results. Recent elections have left uncertainty in voting laws and it is expected that legal fights will continue following the upcoming election.
Haverstick, who represents Republicans, predicted, “litigation after elections is here to stay.” He said post-election litigation has grown more common as “part of the slow drift in popular perception that our highest courts aren’t neutral arbiters anymore.”
He also noted that the recent decision from the U.S. Supreme Court regarding the validity of mail-in ballots, which vacated a lower court ruling, cast further uncertainty over voting regulations and litigation.
