Florida Supreme Court Orders Redrawing of Some U.S. Congressional Districts

The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday ordered the redrawing of some of the state's U.S. congressional districts before the 2016 elections. The state's high court found the legislature's redistricting plan was "constitutionally invalid," the latest decision in a long-running legal battle over gerrymandering in the state. The court said two of the state's 27 congressional districts, currently occupied by Democrat Corrine Brown of Jacksonville and Republican Daniel Webster in the Orlando area, need to be redrawn, as well as adjacent districts.
