U.S. Federal Judge Lee Rudofsky dismissed a lawsuit that sought to challenge Arkansas’ new congressional districts. The judge may have considered the case had the Department of Justice not declined to be named with the private plaintiffs.

Arkansas’ Board of Apportionment had approved the new boundaries in December 2021. The private groups bringing suit claimed that the redistricting created too few majority-black districts.

Judge Rudofsky ruled that private groups are not able to sue for violations of the federal Voting Rights Act, despite the strong merits of the case.
