Supreme Court dismisses challenge to Texas Senate’s redrawn maps

The lawsuit involved District 10 in the Fort Worth area.

FORT WORTH, Texas – The US Supreme Court on Monday a lawsuit dismissed Challenge the redrawn map of the Texas Senate District.

The state argued that the Supreme Court did not have jurisdiction in the case because the groups suing the state waited so long to file an appeal — 121 days after the district court’s decision — and the judges agreed.

The challenge centered on Senate District 10 in North Texas.

The newly drawn District 10 consists of eight wards, a mix of rural and urban.

Previously, it consisted entirely of Fort Worth and was represented by a Democrat.

Today, challengers say it was redrawn to give the seat to a Republican.

Three district judges previously ruled that while the map disproportionately affected minority voters, they could not prove the change was racially motivated.
