On August 2, U.S. District Court Judge Kimberly J. Mueller ruled that Citizens for Fair Representation v Padilla, e.d., 2:17cv-973, should go to a 3-judge court. This is the case that says the U.S. Constitution requires that California’s legislative districts have fewer residents. Currently California State Senate districts have almost 1,000,000 inhabitants, and Assembly districts almost 500,000.
On August 3 the state asked that the judge reconsider. No response has been received since August 3.
