US Democrats lose suit seeking to bar voter intimidation

The shorthanded eight-member US Supreme Court followed protocol in which justices are usually reluctant to intervene in campaign issues before an electionThe US Supreme Court on Monday rejected an 11th-hour move by the Democratic Party in Ohio seeking to prevent Donald Trump supporters from carrying out certain actions that could be considered voter intimidation. The legal battle, followed across the country because of its potential implications, had stemmed from Trump’s assertions on the campaign trail — without providing evidence — that the election was likely to be “rigged” and that his supporters should watch polling sites on Tuesday. Fearing this call would lead to Trump supporters intimidating voters, particularly minorities who are more likely to support Democrat Hillary Clinton, the Ohio Democratic Party filed a lawsuit and initially won their case in federal court on Friday.
