MILWAUKEE (AP) - Lawyers in a federal case over the legality of Wisconsin's election maps have dropped several of their claims, leaving two issues on the table.
The trial entered its second and final day Friday in Milwaukee. Democrats and an immigrant-rights group are suing to prevent the state elections board from conducting elections based on the new maps.
The plaintiffs dropped several allegations, including a claim that Assembly districts had been drawn inappropriately in predominantly black neighborhoods.
A panel of three judges is considering two remaining issues. One is whether the maps deprived Latinos of their constitutional rights, and the other is whether some 300,000 Wisconsin voters were needlessly moved into and out of districts, delaying when they could vote in a Senate election.
