Two federal judges have released an opinion that accuses Lone Star State legislators of drawing a congressional map in a “rushed and secretive process” that intended to discriminate against Hispanic and Democrat voters. The only problem says the dissenting jurist–the panel could not legally issue the decision because the Fifth Circuit made clear that after Texas repealed the 2011 plan, “the case became moot and eliminated the district’s jurisdiction.” The 2-1 decision nullifies three of the congressional voting districts drawn by the Texas Legislature in 2011. The order does not set forth how the nullified district maps will be redrawn, but the opinion creates more uncertainty.
