Board seeks final judgment in redistricting case

JUNEAU — The Alaska Redistricting Board is seeking a final judgment approving use of its latest map in upcoming elections.


Superior Court Judge Michael McConahy last month accepted the board’s plan, saying it met constitutional standards.

Plaintiffs in the case, including two Fairbanks-area residents and the Alaska Democratic Party, decided not to appeal. Board attorneys, in seeking a final judgment, say the plaintiffs also did not ask McConahy to reconsider his decision by a recently passed deadline.

The attorneys are seeking a judgment declaring the board complied with an Alaska Supreme Court order and was the prevailing party in the litigation.

They also want the judgment to declare the map “constitutional in all respects” and to be used until a new map is drawn after the 2020 Census.
