Louisiana Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin announced that on February 2, the Louisiana Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal dismissed a lawsuit filed by Democratic political activist Marc Elias’ law firm and backed by Eric Holder’s National Redistricting Action Fund seeking a premature redrawing of the state’s congressional districts by the court.

“I am pleased that the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal has agreed with the stance I have held since this frivolous lawsuit was filed—that the legislature must be allowed to perform its constitutional duty,” Ardoin said. “Political operatives asking a state court to supersede elected lawmakers’ responsibility is troubling.”

The case, English et al. v. Ardoin, is similar to suits filed by Elias and backed by Holder in states like Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
