North Carolina v. North Carolina State Conference of NAACP

Docket 16-833, in the 4th Circuit:

1. Whether a Federal Court has the Authority to Re-Impose, under Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act, preclearance Standard invalidated as to Section 5 by Shelby County v. Holder.

2. Whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit erred in holding that, although the challenged Reforms did not adversely affect Minority Voting, the North Carolina Legislature nonetheless intended to deny African Americans the Right to Vote.

3. Whether Statistical Racial Disparities in the use of Voting Mechanisms or Procedures are relevant to a Vote Denial Claim under Section 2.

The Supreme Court Relisted this Case after the April 13th, April 21st, and April 28th Conferences.
