“Virginia Supreme Court upholds 11 challenged state legislative districts”

Richmond Times-Dispatch:

The Supreme Court of Virginia declined to set aside a ruling that upheld 11 General Assembly districts that were challenged as being designed for political purposes.

In the Thursday ruling, the state’s high court upheld a March ruling by Richmond Circuit Court Judge W. Reilly Marchant.

Redistricting reform group OneVirginia2021 brought the lawsuit and both rulings are a setback for those who want to take politics out of district line drawing, which is done by the Virginia General Assembly and approved by the governor.
