TEXAS REDISTRICTING & ELECTION LAW

Updates about ongoing redistricting litigation in the Lone Star State and coverage of election law more generally. This website's goal is to try to make sure the redistricting process and litigation over voting law is as transparent and accessible as possible to the public. Hopefully, it will be of some use to a broad range of interested parties, both lawyers and non-lawyers. Have questions, comments, suggestions, additional content, or a redistricting joke (or two)?

Word that briefs in the Texas redistricting appeal were sent on Wednesday to the Justices for consideration at their January 4 conference.

If the Justices make a decision about whether to take the case or summarily affirm or dismiss, an order could come down either that afternoon or the following Monday, January 7, ahead of that day’s oral arguments.

It is not uncommon for cases to be re-listed several times, however, before the court makes a decision about whether it wants to grant full review.
