Obama administration to sue U.S. state on voting rules: source
David IngramWASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Obama administration plans to sue North Carolina on Monday to block newly enacted voting rules that it believes violates federal civil rights law, a person briefed on the Justice Department's plan said on Sunday.
The challenge would be the second of its kind in three months aimed at voting changes in a Republican-led state. In July, the Justice Department said it would sue Texas. The department's civil rights enforcers are acting after the U.S. Supreme Court in June invalidated part of the 1965 Voting Rights Act they previously relied on.
Attorney General Eric Holder is expected to discuss the suit at a news conference in Washington with North Carolina-based Justice Department lawyers.
