A Voters Rights Act lawsuit challenging the election method of the Cumberland County Board of Commissioners has been dismissed by a U.S. District Court judge.

The lawsuit, filed in March 1988 by the Fayetteville-Cumberland County Black Democratic Caucus, sought to overturn the county's at-large voting method for the five-member board. The action was filed after negotiations failed between the board and the caucus on establishing a seven-member board elected from single-member districts.Caucus members said they haven't decided whether to appeal.
