Illinois | Federal court throws out June legislative maps, declines to send issue to bipartisan commissionA three-judge federal court panel in Chicago ruled Tuesday that the legislative redistricting plan that Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed into law in June -- before official 2020 U.S. Census numbers were available -- was unconstitutional because the population variances among districts violated the "one-person, one-vote" doctrine.

Instead, it declared the second set of maps that Pritzker signed in September, following a legislative special session, to be a "starting point" in developing a new map, and it invited plaintiffs in two cases challenging the redistricting process to propose their own solutions.
