U.S. Supreme Court

Connor v. Waller, 421 U.S. 656 (1975)

Connor v. Waller

No. 74-1509

Decided June 5, 1975

421 U.S. 656

Syllabus

The District Court's error in holding that certain Mississippi statutes do not have to be submitted for clearance pursuant to § 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and its consequent error in deciding the constitutional challenges to the statutes based on racial discrimination claims, require reversal; but this is without prejudice to that court's authority to entertain an appropriate proceeding to require that the 1975 elections be conducted pursuant to a court-ordered reapportionment plan. 396 F.Supp. 1308, reversed.
