U.S. Supreme Court won’t hear N.C. Voting Rights Act Challenge

14 Nov

Via Scotusblog:

 “The Supreme Court on Monday declined review of a second case testing the constitutionality of a key section of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, but the denial will have no effect on the Court’s coming review of that issue.  Last Friday, the Court agreed to hear a case from Shelby County, Ala.  On Monday, it denied certiorari in a case presenting the same issue from Kinston, N.C. — very likely because the lower court had ruled that case to be moot.  Lawyers for the challengers had attempted to revive the case, but the Justices apparently found their argument unpersuasive.  That case was Nix v. Holder (12-81).”
