The ancient, generations-old definition of which areas of the country must be precleared for congressional redistricting and which do not need to be precleared is obviously out of date. The government was reduced to saying "ok, we admit there's a problem, and we admit that you warned us to fix it years ago and we ignored you, but come on, these formulas are good enough, aren't they?"
I agree, it'll be 5-4 to overturn at least Section 5. Roberts has a pretty well defined background on the issue, and Kennedy's leaning that direction as well.
