6. What Are The Legal Grounds For Hearing This Case

The law is the law. Or at least that is always what I was taught. Now the Supreme Court is set to legislate from the bench by rewriting the work of Congress and signed into law by the President. While conditions on the ground have changed somewhat it should be up to Congress to deal with the new realities and not for the Supreme Court to impose their will. I can easily see this being another 5-4 decision to strike down Section 5.

All they need to do is to look at what Texas has attempted to do, knowing the direction this would go should this provision be declared unconstitutional. And that was when Section 5 was hanging over their head and they still attempted their crap so take that away and who know what crap they would attempt to pull. It would certainly put in shambles the notion of original intent that conservative so like to throw in our face.
