Louisiana Congressional Redistricting Challenge (Callais)

Callais v. Landry

Lawsuit filed on behalf of 12 “non-African American voter[s]” challenging the state’s new 2024 congressional map. The Louisiana Legislature enacted a new congressional map in 2024 after the previous map was struck down by a federal court for violating Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. The plaintiffs claim that the recently enacted map is racially gerrymandered and violates the 14th and 15th Amendments. The voters ask the court to block future use of the congressional map and adopt a new map without a racial gerrymander.
