LWV of Florida Reaction to Florida Supreme Court Accepting Jurisdiction in Redistricting Case

On Wednesday, January 24, 2024, the Florida Supreme Court accepted jurisdiction of the League of Women Voters of Florida and partners appeal regarding Congressional District 5. This decision reflects the importance and significance of the issues at hand, and we welcome the opportunity to present our arguments before the highest court in Florida.

The collective journey to reach this moment has been made possible by the plaintiffs’ dedication, tireless effort, and a shared commitment to justice. As a co-plaintiffs with Black Voters Matter, Equal Ground Education Fund, Florida Rising Together, the League recognizes the serious responsibility that comes with presenting this case before the Florida Supreme Court. This case has far-reaching implications, not only for the litigants, but for the broader legal landscape and the residents of North Florida. All organizations involved remain steadfast in our pursuit of justice and are confident that the Supreme Court’s thorough consideration will result in a just and equitable resolution.

As we prepare for the forthcoming proceedings, we look forward to a fair and impartial hearing. Our faith in the judicial process is reinforced by the knowledge that our case will be adjudicated with the utmost diligence and integrity.
