Women’s league files redistricting legal brief


The League of Women Voters of New York State filed an amicus brief with the appellate court hearing the case challenging the redistricting maps drawn by the state legislature, calling its new maps unconstitutional.

“Under the clear language of the constitution, new maps must now be drawn by the court, not by the legislature, to provide the critical protection against partisan gerrymandering,” wrote Laura Ladd Bierman, the executive director.
