Notice of Lawsuit

The Asian Law Alliance has joined Robert Rubin, as lead counsel, and Laura Ho of Goldstein, Borgen, Dardarian & Ho, to bring a lawsuit against the City of Santa Clara for its discriminatory use of at-large elections to limit Asian American candidates from taking seats in vital government roles. This practice violates the California Voting Rights Act of 2001. Since 1951, no Asian-American has been elected to the City Council despite making up approximately 30.5% of the City’s current population of eligible voters and numerous Asian-American candidates having run for City Council in recent years.
