Monday was the deadline for court briefs from black leaders and the U.S. Department of Justice to be filed with U.S. District Judge Tom Lee in the historic lawsuit filed by the Justice Department alleging the majority-black Noxubee County Democratic Party, its chairman Ike Brown and the county Election Commission practiced racial discrimination against white voters and candidates.
