A group called Judicial Watch recently filed a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Maryland’s current district boundaries. Critics of the current boundaries say they are ridiculous and serve only to stack the deck for a particular party. Back in 2012, the districts were replanned, moving more than one quarter of Maryland into a different district.

We’ll see how their interpretation and argumentation holds up in court. You can read more about this lawsuit here, and you can read the lawsuit itself here.
