Idaho Redistricting Cases:  the 1990s

Miller v. Cenarrusa(4th Jud. Dist.)

Before the Legislature had enacted a redistricting plan, plaintiff alleged that the Legislature was at an impasse and that judicial intervention was necessary.  When the Legislature enacted a plan, the case was dismissed.

Idaho Hispanic Caucus v. State(D. Id. Dec. 10, 1992)

Plaintiffs sought to redraw the legislative districts in Canyon County to concentrate a higher percentage of Hispanics in a single district.  The district that the plaintiffs proposed would not have produced a majority of Hispanic voters and, therefore, the case was dismissed for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted.
