“Federal judge sides with NAACP in voting rights challenge of East Ramapo school district”


A federal judge struck down the method East Ramapo uses to elect its school board Tuesday, saying the current setup is unfair to black and Latino voters.

U.S. District Court Judge Cathy Seibel, in a 77-page decision issued this morning, said the East Ramapo Central School District will be banned from using the at-large method to elect school board members in elections scheduled for June 9.
