Georgia judge declines to block voting law civil rights groups say is discriminatory

A federal judge in Georgia Wednesday ruled against civil rights groups seeking a preliminary injunction to block voting restrictions the state enacted after the 2020 presidential election. Multiple civil rights groups filed the federal lawsuit in March 2021, arguing that new voting restrictions under Senate Bill 202 — known as the “Election Integrity Act of 2021” and signed by Georgia’s Republican Governor Brian Kemp — discriminates against Black voters and was passed in response to their record turnout in the 2020 election.
