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)?

Lyle Denniston over at SCOTUSblog advises that the State of Texas’ appeal of the DC panel’s redistricting decision has not been relisted for consideration by the Justices at this Friday’s case screening conference.

It is unclear exactly what that means, but some speculation is that the case may be on hold until after the court hears challenges to the constitutionality of section 5 of the Voting Rights Act in Shelby Co. v. Holder.
