A federal appeals court ruled last week that Florida can require former felons to pay all outstanding fines and fees before gaining the right to vote, overturning a judge who said the requirement was an unconstitutional “pay to vote” system that would bar nearly a million people from the ballot box. This week we’re breaking it all down, including the backstory, the ruling itself, and a scathing dissent. Also this week: a Ninth Circuit ruling that could clear the way for the Trump administration to potentially deport almost 400,000 people; a former King & Spalding lawyer who is now battling both his ex-firm and his current attorneys; and Chuck E. Cheese makes an unusual play in its ongoing federal bankruptcy.
