McDaniel v. Sanchez - 448 U.S. 1318 (1980)
U.S. Supreme Court
McDaniel v. Sanchez, 448 U.S. 1318 (1980)
McDaniel v. Sanchez
Decided August 14, 1980
448 U.S. 1318
An application to stay, pending the disposition of a petition for certiorari, the Court of Appeals' judgment requiring applicant Texas county officials to proceed with procedures for the "preclearance," under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, of a new apportionment plan for county commissioner precincts ordered by the District Court and approved by the county commissioners, is granted. It appears that there is a "reasonable probability" that four Members of this Court will vote to grant certiorari, and that the balance as to the possibility of "irreparable harm" favors the applicants.
