Georgia Congressional Redistricting Challenge (Common Cause)

Common Cause v. Raffensperger

Lawsuit filed on behalf of Common Cause, the League of Women Voters of Georgia and individual voters challenging Georgia’s new congressional map. Specifically, the plaintiffs argue that the Republican-controlled General Assembly used race as the predominant factor in drawing the 6th, 13th and 14th Congressional Districts without any compelling state reason nor to comply with the Voting Rights Act. The lawsuit asks the court to block the challenged districts from being used in future elections and to order the creation of a new map that complies with the U.S. Constitution and the Voting Rights Act.
