Redistricting in Alabama -- the story so far
The Republicans have introduced their legislative redistricting plan. See the proposed plans.
The plan has been tweaked a bit and passed by the relevant committees in a special session. See Committee approves House redistricting plan and Senate panel gives its OK to plan to redraw Alabama Senate districts
In the meanwhile, the Democrats are trying to throw the switch and get the GOP train onto a siding. Their suit claims that the Legislature waited too late to begin redistricting and that only a court can enact a plan. See Redistricting plan faces lawsuit, charges of 'racial gerrymandering'
Judge Charles Price has said, in effect, "your case is too early." See Redistricting restraining order denied | al.com
