Idaho Legislative Redistricting Challenge (Durst)

Durst v. Idaho Commission for Reapportionment

Lawsuit filed on behalf of a former Republican legislator challenging Idaho’s newly-drawn legislative map following the release of 2020 census data. The complaint argues that the new map violates the Idaho Constitution “because it divides more counties externally than needed to meet standards of equal protection” and asks the court to either adopt a plan that splits fewer counties or order the bipartisan redistricting commission to redraw the map. The case was consolidated with three others challenging the state’s new legislative maps and this case was designated as the lead case.
