Colorado Congressional Redistricting

  Map of congressional lines



ATTENTION: Although the General Assembly introduced several congressional redistricting maps during the 2011 legislative session, none of the plans were enacted.  When the session ended, two lawsuits were filed in Denver District Court to decide the matter.  The cases were consolidated into one under the caption: Moreno et al. v. Gessler, Case No. 11CV3461; consolidated with Case No.: 11CV3463. On November 10, 2011, the district court ruled in favor of the "Moreno/South" map.  The map is attached below.  The court order is available here: http://bit.ly/sbGInl

On November 17, 2011, the Colorado Supreme Court agreed to hear an appeal of the Denver District's Court decision.  The Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the case on December 1, 2011, at 11:15 a.m.  in the Old Supreme Court Chambers at the Colorado State Capitol.  An audio recording of the hearing is available here: http://bit.ly/4DRyIZ


On December 5, 2011, the Colorado Supreme Court affirmed the judgment of the Denver District Court. The court order is available here: http://bit.ly/u2YKkF, and a written opinion can be found here: http://bit.ly/JZYpE2.
