3 Judges To Decide Redistricting

Kansas lawmakers will soon learn the consequences of failing to redraw the state’s political boundaries.

They’ve left redistricting to three federal judges who will settle a lawsuit involving more than three dozen lawyers and the key figures in the legislative impasse.

The judges must set the new lines for congressional, state House, state Senate and State Board of Education districts. A bitter feud among majority Republicans in the Legislature prevented passage of any political maps.

A two-day trial of the lawsuit, filed in early May over the unfairness of the current districts, is scheduled to begin Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Kansas City, Kansas.

The three judges are allowing 29 individuals to participate in the case, potentially call witnesses and submit redistricting proposals.
