Schneiderman, State AGs, File Brief In Evenwel Redistricting Case

As first reported here last Friday, NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman was joined by 20 other state Attorneys General in an amicus brief in the  Evenwel v. Abbott redistricting litigation pending before the US Supreme Court.

Today, Colby Hamilton (in a firewalled NY Politico article) and Nick Reisman (in NY State of Politics) cover the amicus brief filing.

If the petitioners are successful, Evenwel would have a dramatic impact on New York State, shifting State Assembly and Senate districts from downstate to upstate and shifting districts in communities with more children and minorities around within jurisdictions.
