Idaho Legislative Redistricting Challenge (Allan)

Allan v. Idaho Commission for Reapportionment

Lawsuit filed on behalf of members of the Coeur d’Alene and the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes challenging Idaho’s legislative map drawn with 2020 census data. The complaint argues that the Idaho Commission for Reapportionment focused too much on drawing districts with nearly equal populations at the expense of other compelling state and tribal interests. In particular, the complaint alleges that the new legislative districts unnecessarily divides up counties and splits the Coeur d’Alene and the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes’ reservations between multiple districts. The lawsuit asks the court to block the use of the new legislative map and order the creation of a new map that complies with the Idaho Constitution and state law. The case was consolidated with three others challenging the state’s new legislative map, with Durst v. Idaho Commission for Reapportionment designated as the lead case.
