’Racist’ Mississippi prosecutor is sued for blocking black jurors

Four black voters and a branch of the NAACP sued a Mississippi prosecutor for systematically blocking black people from juries. The lawsuit against District Attorney Doug Evans is an outgrowth of a case in which the Supreme Court overturned a murder conviction of an African American man, citing racial bias in jury selection.
