“Democrats revive their lawsuit over Wisconsin gerrymandering in hopes of blocking election maps in 2020”

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:

Democrats are renewing their lawsuit over election maps that have helped Republicans maintain big margins in the state Assembly.

An expanded group of Democratic voters filed a new version of their long-running lawsuit on Friday, three months after the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously found the plaintiffs lacked legal standing to bring an earlier version of their suit.

The new filing, submitted to a three-judge court in Madison, tried to address that legal flaw by adding far more voters to the case who contend their rights were violated because of the way the Assembly districts they live in were drawn.
