Supreme Court Denies Stay in North Carolina Voting Rights Case

ACLU

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Supreme Court today denied North Carolina’s request to stay a federal appeals court ruling that struck down the state’s restrictive voting law.

The American Civil Liberties Union and Southern Coalition for Social Justice challenged the law, charging it discriminates against African-American voters and unduly burdens the right to vote, in violation of the U.S. Constitution’s 14th Amendment and the Voting Rights Act.
