Ohio Redistricting Challenge (Bennett)

Bennett v. Ohio Redistricting Commission

Lawsuit filed in the Supreme Court of Ohio on behalf of multiple voters challenging the state’s new General Assembly maps passed after the release of 2020 census data. The complaint argues that the new maps are drawn to lock in Republican veto-proof supermajorities in both chambers of the legislature and are therefore partisan gerrymanders in violation of the Ohio Constitution. The suit asks the court to declare the new maps invalid and order the creation of fair maps.
