PRESS RELEASE: Florida Congressional Redistricting Maps Upheld in Federal Court

Tallahassee, Fla. –

A federal three-judge redistricting panel unanimously upheld Florida’s 2022 congressional redistricting maps. This decision follows a four-day bench trial in Tallahassee in late September 2023.

“This decision is vindication that Florida’s redistricting maps comply with Florida law and the U.S. Constitution,” said Secretary of State Cord Byrd. “We are very pleased with the outcome of this effort.”

The U.S. District Court states the following in their final per curiam:

“Plaintiffs had to prove both discriminatory effects and a discriminatory purpose. They proved neither. Thus, [the Court] concur[s] in the decision to grant judgment in the Secretary’s favor.”
