Florida's Secretary of State appealed a state court ruling that invalidated several of the state's new congressional districts. The appeal automatically results in a stay of the lower court opinion until the First District Court of Appeals hears the case.
A state judge in Florida invalidated part of the state's new congressional map as a violation of the federal Voting Rights Act. Judge Smith held that by eliminating a majority-Black district, the new map diminishes Black voting power in Northern Florida.
Civil rights groups filed a lawsuit in state court challenging the state's new congressional map. Plaintiffs argue that the new districts violate the state's constitution—namely the Fair Districts Amendment—because the map favors Republicans by a more than two-to-one margin, and because the map dilutes the power of racial minority voters.
