Case Information

Federal court challenge to the congressional plan passed by the legislature to remedy the Robinson VRA litigation, alleging the impermissible predomination of race and dilution of the voting strength of non-Black voters in violation of the Constitution.

On Apr. 30, 2024, the three-judge court struck the remedial plan as an unjustified unconstitutional use of race, and set the matter for a remedial hearing.  On May 15, 2024, the U.S. Supreme Court stayed that decision pending appeal.
