A coalition of civil rights groups has filed a federal lawsuit challenging Georgia’s sweeping new voting restrictions, arguing that the Republican-backed law is intended to make it harder for people – particularly Black voters – to cast ballots.

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden - who became the first Democratic presidential candidate in three decades to win Georgia in November’s election - accused Republicans there and in other states of mounting a broad assault on voting rights.
