Fourth Circuit Dismisses NAACP Suit

According to the AP:

The Fourth Circuit upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit that claimed York County, S.C., police and prosecutors tried to intimidate NAACP members by questioning them in their homes, following them in cars and keeping them from attending a criminal trial.

A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court unanimously ruled Monday that the civil rights group's Western York County Branch was not entitled to an injunction because it failed to show that future violations of its constitutional rights are likely.
