Lawsuit filed in Alabama over legislative redistricting maps
By Geoff Pallay
BIRMINGHAM, Alabama: On August 10, the Legislative Black Caucus and other African-American elected officials filed a federal lawsuit to attempt to block a new legislative redistricting plan in Alabama.
According to the suit, the new legislative maps "dilute minority voting strength, violate the principle of one person, one vote and unnecessarily and illegally split counties."
