WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The U.S. Supreme Court is considering a change to a landmark civil rights law.

The Voting Rights Act was approved in 1965 to make sure minorities had equal access to voting, especially in southern states.

A lawsuit is now challenging some of the requirements of that law, claiming racism is no longer the problem it once was.

"We ask for some recognition that we and these other covered jurisdictions have made great strides over the last 48 years," said attorney Frank Ellis. 

The court heard oral arguments Wednesday. It could be months before the court issues its ruling.
