Lawsuit Challenges Redistricting Plan

House Minority Leader Jeff Hoover filed a lawsuit Thursday in Franklin Circuit Court to challenge redrawing of state legislative election districts. Hoover, R-Jamestown, was accompanied by Louisville attorney Jason Nemes, who filed a request for a temporary injunction to delay the Jan. 31 filing deadline for candidates. Hoover said Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd will hold a hearing at 10:30 a.m. Monday on the request for an injunction.
