Court Grants Motion to Delay Proceedings in Gerrymandering Lawsuit
Salt Lake City, UT – Today, Campaign Legal Center, League of Women Voters of Utah (LWVUT) and Mormon Women for Ethical Government (MWEG) issued the following joint statement after the court granted the Utah Legislature’s move to delay proceedings in our lawsuit challenging Utah's gerrymandered congressional map.
"Regardless of which court hears our case, the facts remain the same. Politicians in Utah’s Legislature overruled the will of the people to repeal Proposition 4, rejected partisan-neutral maps developed with input from the community and then gerrymandered the congressional map to suit their political interests.
We look forward to a fair and thorough review of our claims in the Utah Supreme Court and remain hopeful that Utah voters will soon be able to pick their politicians, instead of the other way around."
