The U.S. Supreme Court stayed a lower court injunction that had blocked Louisiana's congressional districts from being used until the state created a second majority-Black district. The state is now free to use the districts in 2022 and work to comply with the lower court's order by 2024.
The Louisiana state legislature adjourned from its special session without adopting a new congressional map. The task now falls to the federal courts.
The Fifth Circuit lifted its stay of a lower court ruling that had invalidated Louisiana's congressional districts. The state legislature must now draw new districts by June 20 or the task will fall to the federal courts.
Who controls redistricting in Louisiana right now?
Neither party fully controls the congressional redistricting process. New maps are drawn and passed by the Republican state legislature and signed into law by the Democratic governor.
