Breaking News Headlines: Obama Hits Supreme Court on Voting Rights Case

by Wochit 1:04 mins

President Obama says he's "deeply disappointed" with the decision to strike down a provision of the Voting Rights Act, and called on Congress to revamp the law. The ruling "upsets decades of well-established practices that help make sure voting is fair, especially in places where voting discrimination has been historically prevalent," said the nation's first African-American president in a written statement. SoftBank?s $21.6 billion deal to buy Sprint got the hearty approval of Sprint shareholders, with 98 percent of the votes at a special shareholder meeting cast in favor. This follows Dish dropping out of the bidding for the U.S. carrier, and SoftBank raising its offer. After a fiery and at times odd first day, the trial of George Zimmerman turns its focus to whether the neighborhood watch volunteer targeted others for alleged suspicious activities.
