Federal Judges Toss Out Robson’s Redistricting Lawsuit

The first of many.  Get used to them liberals and partisan Democrats.

A trio of federal judges in Milwaukee has refused to step into Wisconsin’s political redistricting fight.

Former state Senate Democratic Majority Leader Judy Robson asked a three-judge panel in June to take over the redistricting process if legislators didn’t put a constitutional plan in place in a timely fashion.

The Republican-controlled Legislature passed new boundaries earlier this month. Republican Gov. Scott Walker has yet to sign them into law.

The judges said no special circumstances exist that would warrant the extraordinary remedy of taking over redistricting from the Legislature.

Another federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the Republicans’ new maps is still pending.

There’s supposed to be another lawsuit out there, but it eludes me at the moment who filed it. It too will meet a similar fate to this one.
