Group Files Lawsuit Challenging New Map Timelines: Redistricting 2022

12 days later, on January 31st, a group filed a lawsuit against the newly map signed into law (Callais v. Landry), challenging the map under the 14th Amendment claiming racial gerrymandering.
The three panel judge ruled in favor of the plaintiffs and struck down the new congressional map. This leaves Louisiana without settled congressional maps, 6 months before the November elections, which poses a major roadblock.
