The effects of the Georgia redistricting case on redistricting in Virginia

Following the Supreme Court's decision on Thursday in the case of Georgia v. Ashcroft, which dealt with changes in the shape of state senate districts in another state like Virginia covered by the federal Voting Rights Act, the litigants challenging the make-up of the 4th congressional district in Southeastern Virginia are claiming their prospects for success in the case are improved, as reported here in the Richmond Times-Dispatch and here by the Daily Press.

Sneaking Suspicions has this interesting post and Election Law has this detailed post on the Georgia case.
