Redistricting Litigation

Our firm has substantial experience litigating cases in federal court involving challenges to redistricting of congressional and legislative districts. In this context, we have been privileged to have represented Governor Bob Riley in one such case. We have also been involved in challenges to remedial plans imposed by federal courts under the Voting Rights Act on county commissions and county boards of education across the state. In these cases, we have been successful in achieving judgments which have freed several counties from federal court interference with their local government, its form, and its manner of election.
