Panel Throws Out GOP-Drawn Indy Redistricting Plan

INDIANAPOLIS (AP): A judicial panel split along partisan lines has sided with Democrats and thrown out an Indianapolis City-County Council redistricting plan that was passed by the council's former Republican majority and signed into law by Republican Mayor Greg Ballard. A Marion Superior Court panel of three Democratic judges and two Republicans ruled 3-2 Wednesday that the redistricting plan was improper under Indiana law because the council drew the districts in late 2011 before a Democratic-majority council took office in 2012. A state law applying specifically to Indianapolis says the council must redraw the district boundaries during the second year after a census, which last was conducted in 2010.
