Compton elections:It's hard to let go of power !

Compton elections: Judge declines to delay the April primary and June general election - latimes.com

A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge has denied a request to delay Compton's municipal elections until a trial determines whether the city's at-large elections violate the civil rights of Latinos by diluting their voting power.

In a tentative ruling hashed out with attorneys Tuesday, Judge Ann I. Jones said the plaintiffs, three Latina residents, had not presented enough evidence to warrant postponing Compton's April primary and June general election. Jones said she would take the matter under submission, before issuing a definitive judgment within the week.
