Texas Redistricting Challenge (LULAC)

League of United Latin American Citizens v. Abbott

Lawsuit filed on behalf of the Texas Latino Redistricting Task Force, which includes the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), Southwest Voter Registration Education Project, Mi Familia Vota and others, and Texas voters challenging the state’s redistricting plans. The complaint alleges that 1) the state’s current congressional, legislative and board of education maps based on 2010 census data are unconstitutionally malapportioned in violation of the 14th Amendment and should be blocked from use in future elections and 2) the state’s current plans for new congressional, legislative and board of education maps based on 2020 census data intentionally dilute the voting strength of Latinx communities in violation of Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act. The case was consolidated with six others challenging Texas’ redistricting results, this case being designated as the lead where future filings can be found.
