Redistricting has been a tooth-and-nail battle royale in almost every state, and Missouri is no exception.
Due to losing one congressional seat due to the census results the Missouri state legislature eliminated Russ Carnahan’s St. Louis based seat, whipping the litigious left into a frenzy.
Now, it seems, things are not going their way.
A Cole County Judge is indicating he’ll support the Congressional lines drawn by the Missouri legislature. […]
After Thursday’s hearing, Cole County Judge Dan Green says those parties challenging the new lines have “a political quarrel” with the lawmakers who drew up the maps, as opposed to a legal one. He asked the lawyers defending the map draw up a proposed statement supporting their position.
It may sound like good news, but what do the members of the litigious left do when they lose a lawsuit?
They re-file the lawsuit.
Whatever the ruling, it is likely to be appealed to the Missouri Supreme Court.
Comforting, isn’t it?
Our legal system on proud display… but at least it’s one step in the right direction.
