Supreme Court strikes down part of Voting Rights Act

NBC News: The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld a civil rights law that requires some states to get federal permission to change their voting rules, but it struck down the formula for which jurisdictions are covered — leaving it to Congress to redraw the map.

The opinion was written by Chief Justice John Roberts. The vote was 5-4.
