Nevada judge wants redistricting plan by November
CARSON CITY, Nevada: A three-hour court hearing was held on September 21, 2011 to provide more guidance to the court-appointed panel that is taking on the roll of drawing congressional and state legislative districts, according to Ballotpedia's Redistricting Roundup. Judge James Russell said he wants to approve a new redistricting plan by November 16, 2011. In the court hearing, Democratic lawyers argued against the need for majority-minority Hispanic districts.
It was also announced that there will be two public hearings held on October 10 and October 11, at which time citizens can weigh in on possible maps.
The next court hearing will be on November 15 or 16, when Judge Russell will either adopt new maps or send them back to the panel for changes.
