A state by state fight': Legal battles over redistricting maps continue into the new year

Some states are preparing for trials. In Florida, the state will have a trial in September after Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis approved a congressional redistricting plan that links Tallahassee and Jacksonville, two districts that have a large population of Black voters.

“We're challenging maps in Florida as a violation of their state constitutions’ prohibition against racial and partisan gerrymandering,” Vicuna said.

States like Texas, Ohio, North Carolina, New York and Maryland are also facing legal battles.

“A lot of the lawsuits were filed in 2021 or early 2022. Some of them are over for now but still lingering, some of them were just brought, some of the litigation will last the entire decade,” Levitt said.

In the meantime some states are changing their redistricting process to remove politicians from drawing the lines, because advocates say it is a conflict of interest.

“In blue states and red states and purple states, voter initiatives have often taken the pen out of the hands of the incumbent politicians. There are different models for who you give the pen to,” Levitt said.
