Plump v. Riley, preliminary injunction requested

We have filed an amended complaint and a motion for a preliminary injunction. The Birmingham News has a story on the new filings.

The amended complaint adds new theories to the complaint -- that is, new legal claims on which the court can rule. In addition to basing our claim on Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act (which is based on the idea that there is a change in election laws that must be precleared), we have added claims that the Governor's action -- even if they are precleared -- have a discriminatory effect.
