Judge: Voter rights denied

Black political leaders in Noxubee County violated the Voting Rights Act of 1965 by discriminating against white voters, a federal judge has ruled.

The U.S. Justice Department in February 2005 filed a civil lawsuit alleging the Noxubee County Democratic Executive Committee and its chairman, Ike Brown, discriminated against white voters, white candidates and those who supported them in the majority black county on the Mississippi-Alabama line.
