Federal District Court in California Voting Rights Act Case Denies Attempt to Stop City of Poway District Elections

Read the order.

Along the way, the court finds that the plaintiff challenging the constitutionality of the CVRA is unlikely to succeed on the merits, It also finds it is too close to the election to make a change now in how the election is conducted (an application of the Purcell Principle)

Given this second point, I expect an attempt to get further relief from the Ninth Circuit or the (short-handed) Supreme Court is unlikely to be successful.
