Florida Supreme Court Will Hear League of Women Voters Case

The 1st District Court of Appeal ruled the lawmakers in the Florida legislature did not have to testify in the redistricting case brought up by the League of Women Voters. In a rather surprising move, the Florida Supreme Court will hear the League of Women Voters redistricting challenge. The LOWV is question the integrity of how the new congressional and legislative districts were drawn. If the districts were gerrymandered then legislators are placing themselves in a legally difficult position if they testify.

The League of Women Voters suit that the Florida Supreme Court will hear is against the Florida House of Representatives. The League of Women Voters attempted to get members of both the House and Senate to testify in the 1st District Court of Appeals case. The Florida Supreme Court case number SC13-949; SC13-951 list only the House as the defendant. A WMNF tweet names only the Florida House in material filed to the Florida Supreme Court by the League of Women Voters.
