Redistricting could face a raft of lawsuits
Expect lawsuits to abound once lawmakers finish redrawing political boundaries sometime this fall.
“I think there’s going to be a fair amount of litigation on the back end,” Marina Jenkins, director of litigation and policy at the National Redistricting Foundation, told Atlanta Civic Circle. “The greedier the legislature gets, the more they open themselves to litigation.”
The National Redistricting Foundation is a four-year-old Washington, D.C. nonprofit that challenges voting rights infractions and other political malfeasance including gerrymandering.
