US court rolls back key voting rights protection. was created by NWP_Preparedness
The decision - approved in a split 2-1 vote by judges - is likely to be appealed before the Supreme Court, kicking off a fresh row over voting rights in the chamber.

Lawyers in Arkansas were appealing against a new congressional map - approved by the Republican dominated state legislature - which they said minimised the power of black voters.

But the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the claim, ruling that only the US Attorney General - not individual citizens - can pursue cases under the Voting Rights Act.

Under Section 2 of the landmark legislation it is illegal to discriminate against voters based on race.
