Alonzo v. Schwab
State court challenge to Kansas’s congressional districts, alleging the plan violates the state’s constitution and the state Legislature’s own redistricting criteria. In particular, plaintiffs argue that the map is an unconstitutional partisan gerrymander (with all four districts likely to be represented by Republicans despite the fact that 40% of population regularly votes for Democratic candidates) and an unconstitutional racial gerrymander (by deliberately diluting the voting power of the most diverse county in Kansas).
The case was consolidated with Rivera v. Schwab.
On April 25, 2022, a Kansas state judge found the plan unconstitutional on both partisan gerrymandering and minority vote dilution grounds.
