US judges refuse to approve new Louisiana congressional map

A new congressional map in Louisiana creating a second majority-Black House district was rejected by a federal panel, leading to uncertainty for fall elections. The ruling blocks a map from 2022 and the new map supported by state officials. The judges cited violations of the Equal Protection Clause and criticized the design of the Black-majority district. The decision impacts current incumbents and potential candidates, creating a challenge for upcoming elections. The legal battle over redistricting reflects ongoing political and racial tensions in Louisiana’s electoral landscape, with implications for representation and voting rights.
