Case Number(s):

This case involves challenges to the boundaries for Florida’s congressional districts that
the Legislature drew in 2012. The League of Women Voters and other critics accused
lawmakers of violating a provision that voters added to the state constitution in 2010 to
ban partisan redistricting. The trial court agreed that lawmakers had violated that
provision, declared two of Florida’s 27 congressional districts unconstitutional, and
rejected challenges to several other districts. Lawmakers submitted a map adjusting the
boundaries of the two districts and the trial court approved the revised map. The League
now appeals, arguing the changes didn’t remedy the constitutional violation.
