A federal court challenge by proponents of a redistricting initiative to the deadline and threshold for signatures for ballot initiatives, in light of COVID-19.
On 7/13/20, the trial court granted a preliminary injunction, offering the state the option to either put the measure on the ballot, or to reduce the signature threshold by 50% and extend the deadline from 7/2/20 to 8/17/20. The case was appealed; on 8/11/20, the U.S. Supreme Court granted a stay of the preliminary injunction pending resolution of the appeal. On 9/1/20, the court of appeals acknowledged that the stay meant that the initiative would not be on the 2020 ballot, and remanded for a determination of whether the case was now moot.
