Motion for Preliminary Injunction in NAACP v. Barbour, et al

Majority in Mississippi has the document, which is embeded below. The NAACP is asking the three-judge panel to issue an injunction which would prohibit the state from holding legislative elections in November under the current districts. The basis for this request is that the current districts are so malapportioned as to violate the "one man, one vote" rule. Put simply, the concept is that a Mississippian in a legislative district that contains around 40,000 people more than other legislative districts is obtaining less representation than he or she should under the law.

One big issue most thought would be resolved by now? The composition of the three-judge panel.

Here's the Motion:
