"Alabama and Albany Minority Voters Get Wins"

Minority voters in Alabama and Albany, N.Y., recently scored courthouse victories in challenges to redistricting plans, drawn, in the first case, by Republicans, and, in the second, by Democrats. Each case required the reviewing court to assess plans of redrawn legislative lines under certain provisions of the Voting Rights Act, and in both instances the courts maintained the unbroken line of cases upholding the constitutionality of the implicated provisions.
