3-Judge Panel Named To Hear Redistricting Lawsuit

ANNAPOLIS Md. (AP) — The chief judge for the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has named a three-judge panel to hear a lawsuit against Maryland’s congressional redistricting map.

Judge William Traxler Jr., announced the panel in court documents made public Tuesday.

The panel includes Judge Paul Niemeyer, of the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, Judge Alexander Williams of Maryland, and Judge Roger Titus also of Maryland.

The lawsuit, which was brought by nine black voters, contends the map approved in a special session of the Maryland General Assembly in October dilutes the black vote in the state.

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close bad cases.
    My dog was poisoned to death, a stolen car was run into the front of my house, gang members are harrassing me, I get death threats, BB guns are being shot at my car when I drive, my car is being tampered with, money and jewelry has been stolen out of my house and these corrupt DOD employees are using torture as a punishment.
    Typical D.O.J. Investigation except they have been harassing me for 20 years.
