A federal appeals court has rejected the Democratic National Convention’s legal challenge against its Republican counterpart, in which it argued GOP operatives worked with the Trump campaign to suppress minority votes in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit affirmed a New Jersey federal judge’s determination that the Republican National Convention had not violated a 1982 consent decree, established to resolve a lawsuit in which the Democrats accused the GOP of intimidating minority voters in the 1981 New Jersey gubernatorial election.
