“Republican activists sue in federal court in bid to institute legislative maps rejected by Ohio Supreme Court as GOP gerrymanders”


A group of Republican activists are suing the Ohio Redistricting Commission, trying to get a panel of federal judges to bypass the Ohio Supreme Court and impose a map proposal the state court previously rejected as an illegal pro-GOP gerrymander.

The lawsuit, filed Friday morning in the Southern District of Ohio by Ohio Right to Life President Mike Gonidakis, former state representative Margy Conditt, and other Republicans, comes just hours after the Republican-dominated commission failed to approve a map before a Thursday deadline set by the Ohio Supreme Court.
