the court's five conservative justices voiced strong doubts about the law's ongoing validity.

I'm not a fan of all the damage the Voting Rights Act has done, but is there an expiration date on it? Because if there isn't, the law's ongoing validity is not a question for the Supreme Court to decide.

If this falls, then affirmative action should be next.

If it’s unconstitutional, they can throw it out at any time.
