STATE REP JOINS REDISTRICTING SUIT
After a recent Athens-Clarke County redistricting plan was endorsed by the Georgia Senate, State Rep. Jane Kidd, a Democratic candidate for the State Senate, is arguing the redistricting was a political move by Republicans to split the county's Democratic vote. Kidd is hoping to add her name to a similar 2003 lawsuit, rather than file her own, to speed up the process. Georgia Law Professor Michael L. Wells said the move, called an "intervention," is not unusual, although a "party asking to join must have some interest in the matter." To read the complete story, see the Athens Banner-Herald.
