Texas Three-Judge Court Cites “Voluminous” Record as Reason Why it Will Take Its Sweet Time on Texas Redistricting


San Antonio, Texas – Its the biggest, most watched redistricting litigation of the decade; but the Texas redistricting case(s) began in 2011 and no ruling has been forthcoming by the federal district court panel tasked to resolve it.  Plaintiff’s recently filed a request for the court to make a final decision and the court responded this week with an epic list of just how in the weeds they are with the paperwork.  The judges wrote: “The Court continues to diligently work through this voluminous record and the complex legal questions presented in this case and will issue an opinion as soon as possible.” But not after listing some actual numbers. Here they are:

  • 1300+ docket entries
  • nearly 3000 exhibits
  • hundreds of hours of testimony
  • 10,000+ pages of transcripts
  • nearly 1800 pages of expert witness depositions
