Federal Judges Rule Ohio Congressional Map Unconstitutional
A three-judge federal panel unanimously ruled Ohio’s gerrymandered congressional district map unconstitutional under the First and 14th Amendments.
On behalf of the League of Women Voters, the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio filed the suit.
The suit claimed the congressional map disfavored democratic voters on the basis of their political affiliation.
The court ordered the state to create a new map by June 14 to prepare for the 2020 election.
