P R O C E E D I N G S(10:14 a.m.)CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS: We'll hear argumentfirst this morning in Case 12-96, ShelbyCounty v. Holder.Mr. Rein?ORAL ARGUMENT OF BERT W. REINON BEHALF OF THE PETITIONERMR. REIN: Mr. Chief Justice, and may itplease the Court:Almost 4 years ago, eight Justices of theCourt agreed the 2005 25-year extension of Voting RightsAct Section 5's preclearance obligation, uniquelyapplicable to jurisdictions reached by Section 4(b)'santiquated coverage formula, raised a seriousconstitutional question.Those Justices recognized that the recordbefore the Congress in 2005 made it unmistakable thatthe South had changed. They questioned whether currentremedial needs justified the extraordinary federalismand cost burdens of preclearance.JUSTICE SOTOMAYOR: May I ask you aquestion? Assuming I accept your premise, and there'ssome question about that, that some portions of theSouth have changed, your county pretty much hasn't.3
