No Fees for FL Redistricting Plaintiffs

The trial judge in Florida who struck Florida’s congressional district map has denied legal fees for the successful plaintiffs.  Orders for legal fees seem like they’re in the weeds, but particularly on cases as complicated and cumbersome as redistricting, they may drive which cases are brought by whom, when, on what grounds.  If you want more cases brought by deep-pocketed political parties against their political adversaries as proxy fights for political wars, by all means, deny fees more generally.
