Judge Roberts' Papers in Connection with the 1982 Voting Rights Act Renewal

The Bush Administration has allowed the National Archives to release papers from Judge Roberts' work in the Reagan Administration in connection with Judge Roberts' nomination to the Supreme Court. I have been examining the papers relating to the 1982 Voting Rights Act renewal. I have posted a set of papers that I obtained from the Alliance for Justice here. There is also a reference to the 1982 amendments in this 1983 document on fair housing posted by the Washington Post. In addition, the Archives just released 59 additional documents, three of which relate to the 1982 renewal. You can find these documents here, here, and here. I rely upon a number of these documents in my Los Angeles Times oped, which should be linked on this page some time Wednesday morning.
