Redistricting: The federal trial over the districts drawn in 2013 for the Texas House of Representatives and U.S. House of Representatives continued in San Antonio. Luis Vera, legal counsel for the League of United Latin American Citizens, testified that Latinos today “control” the same percentage of congressional districts today as in 1970 despite their significant contribution to the state’s population growth. Plaintiffs have several witnesses remaining, prompting some discussion as to whether closing arguments would be made this week, in writing or at a later date.
