Bradley Partner Edmund Sauer Quoted in Tennessean on Fate of Tennessee’s Amendment 1


Media Mention

Bradley attorney Edmund Sauer was quoted in the Tennessean about the fate of Amendment 1, the Tennessee abortion measure that was sent to a federal appeals court. Amendment 1 was passed by voters in November 2014, but the validity of the votes has been challenged—namely the state’s longstanding method of counting votes on ballot measures. A Williamson County judge found the state’s method of counting votes to be correct, but this decision has drawn questions from the appellate panel.

The judges leanings were "difficult to read," explained Sauer, who sat in on the oral arguments. The court's questioning about the Williamson County ruling "indicated the court was really wrestling with that question," he said.
