Lawsuit filed on behalf of the South Carolina State Conference of the NAACP and a voter challenging the state’s current congressional and legislative maps for being malapportioned after the release of 2020 census data. After the South Carolina Legislature enacted new legislative districts, the plaintiffs filed an amended complaint that alleges that the new House map that is racially gerrymandered and dilutes the voting strength of Black voters. The amended suit also alleges that the state is still left with an unconstitutionally malapportioned congressional map that violate the principle of equal representation.
