New Ga. cities too white lawsuit claims

Some Georgia cities formed over the past few years are too white, according to members of the Georgia Legislative Black Caucus who have filed a federal lawsuit calling to dissolve the city charters of Dunwoody, Chattahoochee Hills, Sandy Springs, Milton and Johns Creek, Atlanta Business Chronicle broadcast partner WXIA-TV reports.

The lawsuit filed Monday contends that Georgia lawmakers created white majority governments when they formed new cities and that black voters may have lost the ability to elect people they want to hold office.

State Representative Wendell Willard, R- Sandy Springs, denied the claims and said cities got Voting Rights Act clearance from the U.S. Justice Department before creating the new cities.
