NEW: By a 6–3 vote, the Supreme Court halts a lower court order that had struck down Louisiana’s racial gerrymander. All three liberals dissent. pic.twitter.com/Ssw6NiSL8v— Mark Joseph Stern (@mjs_DC) June 28, 2022
A federal judge found that Louisiana’s new congressional map diluted the votes of racial minorities in violation of the Voting Rights Act, and the 5th Circuit declined to halt that ruling. Now the Supreme Court has stepped in to put the ruling on hold.— Mark Joseph Stern (@mjs_DC) June 28, 2022
A year of work proving Louisiana's congressional map discriminates against Black voters. A 152-page district court opinion finding discrimination, upheld in a 33-page opinion by the most conservative federal court in the nation. Taken away by 6 justices in an act of raw power. https://t.co/PhJ9iROha1— Sam Spital (@SamSpital) June 28, 2022

Loyalty on this level hasn’t been seen since the days of the black Confederates!
