Attorneys for the Plaintiffs in the litigious 2012 City of Los Angeles Redistricting Lawsuit, have filed a Request for Judicial Notice regarding a similar State of Virginia Redistricting Case, that prompted a Three Judge Panel to order a redrawing of unconstitutionally-drawn political boundaries.
The Los Angeles African and Korean-American Communities, along with supporters of a fair Redistricting Process, await the decision of United States Federal Court Judge Consuelo Marshall on whether the "Backroom, Racially-motivated Dealings" of the 2012 Redistricting Process, will go to Trial.
** Bloggers's Note: As disclosed below, Attorneys for the Plaintiffs in the 2012 City of Los Angeles Redistricting Lawsuit, have filed a formal request for Judicial Notice of a similar State of Virginia Redistricting Case entitle "Page vs. The State of Virginia Board of Elections". The comparisons in the "Page Case" and the current 2012 Los Angeles Redistricting Lawsuit, are glaring to say lease and if Los Angeles Federal Court Judge Consuelo Marshall motions to move forward with a trial, could form the foundation for a legal decision, that abolishes the 2012-revised city council boundaries. Among the points made in the Request for Judicial Notice were;
1. An identical strategy of increasing African American population was evidence of racial predominance.
2. A demographic change smaller than the change in CD 10 was evidence of racial predominance.
3. Statements of racial motivation from the sponsor of the legislation were accepted as the explanation of legislative intent.
Since the September 9. 2014 "Judicial Q & A Session" in the Chambers of Judge Marshall
, both sides have awaited a decision on whether a Trial would go forward. Thus, if Judge Marshall decides to cast aside the City of Los Angeles Request for Summery Dismissal, the earliest dates for the ensuing Legal Proceedings would come in January of 2015---Scott Johnson.
