Kansas Congressional Redistricting Challenge (Alonzo)

Alonzo v. Schwab

Lawsuit filed on behalf of a group of Kansas voters challenging the state’s new congressional map. The complaint alleges that the map violates the Kansas Constitution by favoring Republicans and diluting minority voting strength, specifically by targeting both Democratic and minority voters in the Kansas City area. The plaintiffs also allege that the Kansas Legislature violated its own redistricting criteria in approving the enacted plan and passed it using “a rushed process that substantially departed from ordinary legislative procedures.” The lawsuit asks the court to block the enacted map from being used and order the creation of a new plan that complies with state law. The case was consolidated with Rivera v. Schwab; all future case documents and updates can be found on that case page.
