The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear a case on an Arizona voter-rights law that could change the fundamental right to vote. The case is between the Inter Tribal Council (ITC) and the 2004  Proposition 200, which required proof of citizenship and a valid ID to register and vote in elections. The law says that the proof must be “satisfactory evidence” of U.S. citizenship, a term that has become the primary issue with opponents.

Chaninat & Leeds is a US-Thailand law firm located in Bangkok, Thailand and is staffed by licensed Thai attorneys and licensed US lawyers.

A decision is expected this summer.
