Ohio Redistricting Challenge (LWVO)

League of Women Voters of Ohio v. Ohio Redistricting Commission

Lawsuit filed in the Supreme Court of Ohio on behalf of the League of Women Voters of Ohio (LWVO), A. Philip Randolph Institute of Ohio and several individuals challenging Ohio’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 a partisan gerrymander in violation of the Ohio Constitution. The suit asks the court to declare the new maps invalid and order the creation of fair maps.
