Redistricting litigation ramping up

From Politico:

The decennial process of drawing new congressional districts is typically a magnet for lawsuits. This year, however, the litigation is off to a fast start — over a dozen states are already facing suits — and complainants are taking issue with nearly every imaginable aspect of the process.

What’s amazing about this are the amounts being discussed:

Fanning the flames of the legal battle is an avalanche of cash, with officials from both parties saying they’re prepared to raise and spend tens of millions of dollars to fund litigation. House Democrats have said they’re aiming to raise at least $12.5 million and Republicans at least $20 million to fund legal efforts.
