Idaho Supreme Court sets redistricting arguments for Jan. 5

The Idaho Supreme Court has issued an order setting oral arguments on the Twin Falls County challenge to Idaho's new legislative redistricting plan for Jan. 5 at 2 p.m.; it's also set a briefing schedule. It's not clear yet whether that would change if, as expected, an additional challenge is filed tomorrow by a group of northern Idaho counties; if the issues raised are similar, it's possible the two could be consolidated for oral arguments.

The Twin Falls challenge submitted its own proposed redistricting plan, but it wasn't submitted with the state's “Maptitude” software and has little detail beyond population breakdowns between districts; this image shows the statewide map submitted with the challenge. There are also a half-dozen regional close-ups, but detail is sparse. “So far, this is all we've got,” said Idaho Supreme Court Clerk Steve Kenyon.
