Louisiana Redistricting Challenge

Berni v. Ardoin

Lawsuit brought by individual voters challenging Louisiana’s congressional district map following the release of 2020 census data. Petitioners asked the Court to declare Louisiana’s current congressional district map unconstitutional and implement a new map that adheres to the constitutional requirement of one person, one vote. The court denied the motion to dismiss the case, finding that venue is proper and “challenges to redistricting laws may be brought immediately upon release of official data showing district imbalance before reapportionment occurs.”
