Attorney David Imamura Leads Historic Voting Rights Challenge in Mount Pleasant

Home > Media > Audio > Attorney David Imamura Leads Historic Voting Rights Challenge in Mount Pleasant

Abrams Fensterman attorney David Imamura was recently featured in several outlets for his involvement in a Mount Pleasant voting rights case.


The New York Times quoted Imamura, “You’re talking about dozens of municipalities where people of color are unable to elect candidates of their choice, right? This law will allow them to get their seat at the table.”


Represented by Abrams Fensterman, five Hispanic Mount Pleasant residents recently filed the first formal claim under New York’s John R. Lewis Voting Rights Act. The claim alleges that Hispanic residents are being disenfranchised because the town’s method of voting for at-large Town Board seats has denied them representation on the council. Following the filing of the claim by Abrams Fensterman, Mount Pleasant’s Town Board has subsequently initiated a review of its voting system, signaling the potential for meaningful change.


The John R. Lewis Voting Rights Act was passed in 2022. The law creates guidelines to protect against voter intimidation and makes it easier to claim voter suppression or dilution without going to court.


David Imamura is an Associate at Abrams Fensterman, LLP, and a member of the Civil Litigation and White-Collar Criminal defense practice group based out of the firm’s White Plains office. His practice includes New York State Election, Campaign Finance, and Voting Rights law. His experience is particularly relevant in this case.
