Case Information

A federal court challenge to Missouri’s congressional map — first to the failure to redraw districts after the 2020 census, and then to an allegedly unconstitutional use of race in the congressional map eventually drawn by the legislature.

On May 9, 2022, the court denied a motion for a temporary restraining order predicated on the Missouri legislature’s failure to adopt a new congressional district map after the 2020 Census.  After a congressional map was enacted on May 18, 2022, the plaintiff alleged that the new map unconstitutionally packed Black voters within a district.  But after the plaintiff failed to respond to a motion to dismiss despite primaries drawing near, the court dismissed the case on July 8, 2022.
