Citizens Redistricting Commission 
Federal Lawsuit Against CRC is

Dismissed With Prejudice

Los Angeles, CA (February 10, 2012) --   


U.S. District Court Judge Stephen Wilson has dismissed with prejudice litigation filed against the California Citizens Redistricting Commission's Congressional maps.


"Once again the work of the Citizens Redistricting Commission has been affirmed against baseless partisan attacks. California voters created the Citizens Redistricting Commission in order to get partisan politics out of drawing legislative and Congressional districts. The Federal Court has found that the Commission's process complied with the law and was fair and representative," said current Commission Chair Jeanne Raya.


"The Commission has now won five matters in a row. There are no outstanding claims against the Commission and the districts it created," said James Brosnahan, one of the lawyers representing the Citizens Redistricting Commission.

California's first Citizens Redistricting Commission is a new 14-member Commission charged with redrawing California's Senate, Assembly, State Board of Equalization, and Congressional districts based on information gathered during the 2010 census. The Commission must draw the State Senate, Assembly, State Board of Equalization, and Congressional districts in conformity with strict, nonpartisan rules designed to create districts of relatively equal population that will provide fair representation for all Californians.
