Eddie Greim has cornered election and campaign finance law cases for Republican causes.
Greim led a legal challenge in advance of the 2018 ballot over the Clean Missouri amendment, which instituted a new way to draw state legislative districts. While the suit didn’t succeed, voters later approved a constitutional amendment that undid multiple parts of the Clean Missouri law before it went into effect.
Greim also led litigation against the Internal Revenue Service for targeting groups over their political viewpoints and authored an amicus brief for the National Republican Redistricting Trust in a 2019 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that determined federal courts can’t oversee partisan gerrymandering.
His key role in the legal battle over redistricting in 2012 reached the Missouri Supreme Court where he convinced the court to uphold the 2010 redistricting map created after the state lost a seat in U.S. Congress.
Greim earned his law degree from Harvard Law School in 2002.
