Black Caucus sues to dissolve new cities of Johns Creek, Dunwoody, Sandy Springs and Milton.

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

Suit seeks dissolution of  the cities of Johns Creek, Sandy Springs, Dunwoody and Milton as Voting Rights Act violations.

Dr. Joseph Lowery and several Plaintiffs have sued Governor Nathan Deal and several new cities formed in the last six years including Johns Creek, Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, Milton claiming that the incorporation of the areas as nearly all white cities violates the Voting Rights Act by diluting black voting power.  The Black Legislative Caucus claims these cities violate the federal Voting Rights Act and wants them dissolved.

The lawsuit alleges that the new cities are segregated government and dilute black voting strength. Because of Georgia history of discrimination, incorporating of unincorporated areas and changes of voting districts need pre-clearance from the Department of Justice.
