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)?

More analysis once I have a chance to actually read them, but, for now, here are the parties’ briefs on the applicability of section 3(c) of the Voting Rights Act to claims in the San Antonio case.

Quesada plaintiffs, Travis County plaintiffs, NAACP, LULAC

Mexican-American Legislative Caucus

Texas Latino Redistricting Task Force

State of Texas

The parties have until Thursday, August 1, to respond to each others’ briefs.

On Friday, July 26, the State of Texas and Justice Department also are due to file briefs in the section 5 preclearance case in Washington on the applicability of section 3 to that case.
