They would not even hear the case.
So, in effect, the U-S Supreme Court struck down Virginia's only black majority congressional district.
The court refused to hear an appeal from the state and the ACLU.
So a lower court ruling stands.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=@file;


That court said the district is UNconstitutional because race was the predominant factor in determining the lines.
The third district runs from Richmond to Tidewater.
The decision means Virginia's only black congressman, Bobby Scott, will have to run in a new district -- and Virginia lawmakers will have to start arguing over that.
