Supreme Court Upholds Ruling on Redistricting

January 15, 2003|From Staff and Wire Reports

The U.S. Supreme Court has let stand a lower court's ruling that Democratic state legislators did not violate the civil rights of Latino voters in 2001 when they redrew district lines for the San Fernando Valley's two congressional seats.

On Monday, the justices accepted the June ruling by a U.S. District Court in Los Angeles that discrimination against Latinos in Southern California has shrunk to the point that they no longer require the most aggressive forms of protection under the federal Voting Rights Act.
