Virginia Districting Plan - U.S. Supreme Court takes up racial component, Oct. 20, 2016

ATLANTA, GA/WASHINGTON, DC (Oct. 20, 2016):  Southeastern Legal Foundation today filed a brief in support of the Virginia House of Delegates and its districting plan, which was upheld by the lower court.  Challengers argue that race was not considered as a "strong enough" factor when the districts were drawn, while SLF argues that Supreme Court constitutional precedent warns against using race as a determining factor when legislative districts are drawn.
