Abstract The case was filed on behalf of Bob Scaletty, a retired electrician diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, and Missouri Protection and Advocacy Services, which represents people with mental disabilities. Mr. Scaletty had voted consistently until November 2004, when he received a letter saying he could not. The case challenged Missouri laws barring voting by citizens a court has declared are incapacitated and for whom it has appointed a guardian.
