US Justice Department backs Nevada tribes on voting test


RENO, Nev. (AP) — The Justice Department sided with two Nevada tribes' interpretation of a key part of the U.S. Voting Rights Act and a judge said she will issue a ruling Friday in the native Paitues' legal battle with state and county officials over minority access to the polls.

U.S. District Judge Miranda Du listened to arguments during a daylong hearing Tuesday in Reno on whether to grant the tribes' request for an emergency order establishing satellite voting sites on their Pyramid Lake and Walker River reservations in northern Nevada's high desert.
