New Colorado Congressional Districts Affirmed On Appeal
A Denver District Court judge imposes a Congressional District map for Colorado because the Colorado General Assembly failed to reach an agreement on how to redraw the map in light of the 2010 Census in time for the 2012 election. This map was affirmed on appeal by the Colorado Supreme Court today. While further appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court on the grounds that the map imposed is an unconstitutional one could be made, such an appeal, if made, would be very unlikely to prevail.
