Tonight, State of Politics Nick Reisman reports
A three-judge panel on Wednesday will decide whether to dismiss a lawsuit challenging the redistricting process, with a hearing taking place in Brooklyn federal court at 2 p.m.
An update on the court’s website posted this afternoon says the panel will hear oral arguments on the motion to dismiss the suit and also calls on attorneys to update the court on the status of the U.S. Department of Justice’s preclearance process.
Since Nick’s earlier posting, lawyers for the Senate Majority filed a request asking to reschedule the April 18 oral arguments to April 19 or 20 because lead counsel Michael Carvin will be out-of-town at a funeral.
