Florida State Judge Invalidates U.S. House Boundaries

Late on July 10, a Florida state court invalidated the 2011 U.S. House redistricting plan. See this story. The basis for the decision is the Florida Constitution, which tells the legislature to draw the lines in a way that does not help or harm any particular political party. The 41-page decision is Romo v Detzner, Leon County circuit court, 2012-ca-412. Thanks to PoliticalWire for the link to the story, and the Campaign Legal Center for the link to the decision.
