STANFORD LAW — The Stanford Law School Rule of Law Impact Lab has filed an amicus curiae brief on behalf of the Mexican Bar Association before the Mexican Supreme Court in the pending lawsuit challenging legislation (also known as “Plan B”) undermining the independence of Mexico’s highly-regarded Instituto Nacional Electoral (National Electoral Institute) or INE. The brief, filed on May 26, submits that the legislation violates Mexico’s obligations under international law relating to democracy and the right to vote and participate in free and fair elections.
