A bare majority of the super-legislature known as the Supreme Court votes to repeal a crucial part of the Voting Rights Act...

...that the actual legislature evaluated and extended in 2006.  They do so based on the finding of five members of the super-legislature that the portion of the Act at issue is no longer necessary, contrary to the view, apparently, of the actual legislature seven years earlier.

And a minority of scholars are still not legal realists!
