5. Here's a positive piece of information about this case:

Texas may face a struggle to win its case.

In May, Alabama challenged the validity of the voting rights act over a justice department block on the redrawing of constituency boundaries.

A US appeals court judge, David Tatel, said in rejecting Alabama's case that the implementation of the Voting Rights Act is legitimate because it is intended to stop racially motivated disenfranchisement which he called "one of the greatest evils".

Tatel is sitting on the bench hearing the Texas case this week.
