CHAPTER 8
CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS
Note.—The Florida Supreme Court held portions of the congressional district map unconstitutional in The League of Women Voters of Florida v. Detzner, No. SC14-1905 (Fla. July 9, 2015), and relinquished the case to the trial court with directions to the Legislature to redraw districts 5, 13, 14, 21, 22, 25, 26, 27, and all other districts affected by the redrawing. The Legislature was unable to produce a map, and the districts were determined by court order in Romo v. Detzner and Bondi and The League of Women Voters of Florida v. Detzner, Case Nos. 2012-CA-00412 and 2012-CA-00490, United States District Court for the Northern District of Florida, October 9, 2015; the final congressional redistricting plan was approved by the Florida Supreme Court, The League of Women Voters of Florida v. Detzner, No. SC14-1905 (Fla. December 2, 2015).
