Case Information

A federal court challenge to the exclusion of undocumented individuals from the apportionment count of the whole number of persons in a state.  On Nov. 6, 2020, a three-judge federal trial court declared that federal statutes require the apportionment count to include all persons, and enjoined the Census Bureau from including any information other than the total population in the statement delivered to the President for apportionment purposes.  That decision has been appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
