Case Information

Federal court challenge to state legislative districts based on alleged violations of the Voting Rights Act and an unconstitutionally unjustified predominant use of race.

On July 2, 2024, after trial, the court rejected the constitutional gerrymandering claims, but granted relief under the VRA for two state Senate districts and one state House district.  On July 18, 2024, the court postponed a remedy until the legislature could draw revised maps during the 2025 legislative session.
