On January 27, a 3-judge U.S. District Court in San Antonio that is hearing the redistricting lawsuit held a status conference that lasted seven hours. At the conclusion, the judges said that if the plaintiffs and the defendants can agree on new district boundaries for U.S. House and legislature by February 6, then the April 3 primary can proceed. Otherwise, it will be postponed.
In the meantime, the deadline for candidates to file for the primary will be re-opened, but when it will be re-opened is not determined. Previously there had been an agreement that it would re-open February 1, but that date is now defunct and the new date will be settled later.
