Chief Justice Roberts blinks

Earlier today, the Supreme Court, with Chief Justice Roberts writing for an 8-1 majority, declined to pass judgment on the constitutionality of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the most important piece of civil rights legislation that Congress has ever passed.

I plan to write something for tomorrow after giving the Court's opinion and Justice Clarence Thomas's dissent another reading. For now, you can get the Court's opinion here.
