LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — The Department of Justice declined to join a suit challenging Arkansas’ redistricting of legislative districts, asserting that it “continues to take the position that private parties,” such as the Arkansas State Conference of the NAACP, have standing to enforce the Voting Rights Act through a private right of action. Pursuant to that notice, and a Feb. 17 order, a federal court in Arkansas dismissed the case.
