Alabama asks US Supreme Court again to intervene in redistricting case

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to let it keep Republican-drawn congressional lines in place as the state continues to fight a directive to create a second district where Black voters constitute a majority or close to it. Alabama on Monday asked the justices to stay a ruling issued by a three-judge panel that blocked the use of the GOP-drawn districts in 2024 and directed a court-appointed special master to propose new lines. The Supreme Court ruled against Alabama earlier this year in the long-running case. But the state is hoping for a different result with the latest version of the map.
