Last year Colorado Republicans passed a redistricting plan. Democrats of course immediately filed a suit (which they won) to prevent the plan from taking effect saying that the Colorado Supreme Court had redrawn the districts in 2002 and they couldn’t be redrawn again.
Republicans have appealed. Today a federal appeals court rejected the appeal. The ruling is stayed until the U.S. Supreme Court takes up the case.
Let’s hope they do. Redistricting is entirely a legislative process. The law does not provide for the courts to take over the process. This is another example of judicial activism. The Supreme Court needs to stop it.
