The 4th Circuit reversed a North Carolina strict voting law, holding that it had Discriminatory Intent. The rare outright reversal of a trial court is indicative of how misguided the lower court’s decision was. But the real dicks in this story appear to be the NC legislature: they requested all voting data be broken down by race before drafting the new voting law, and the decision highlights that. The overturned law isn’t just poorly designed, it’s just blatantly racist. More analysis at Election Law Blog.
