A federal court challenge to Connecticut’s state legislative districts, on the grounds that counting incarcerated residents where they are incarcerated rather than their pre-incarceration address leaves districts unconstitutionally malapportioned.
On Feb. 15, 2019, the trial court denied a motion to dismiss. On appeal, the 2d Circuit affirmed in part, finding the challenge justiciable, but also determined that the case should be heard by a three-judge panel on remand. On Apr. 14, 2020, the parties agreed to voluntarily dismiss the action.
