Case Information

A state court challenge to the congressional and legislative maps, based on the anticipated failure of the legislature to draw valid lines, and anticipated subsequent malapportionment.

On Mar. 22, 2021, the state Supreme Court granted the request to appoint a special redistricting panel, but then stayed proceedings to give the legislature an opportunity to pass a valid plan.
