The Tennessee Supreme Court ruled Friday it won’t expedite an appeal of a ruling against Tennessee’s Republican-drawn Senate maps, meaning the current maps will likely remain in place for the 2024 elections.
The maps were ruled unconstitutional by a Tennessee court Nov. 22.
“The state and the trial court agree the senate map violates the constitution,” Tennessee Sen. Heidi Campbell, D-Nashville, wrote on social media. “No question. But the Supreme Court just denied requests to expedite appeal and stayed the injunction that required a new map by January 31. So, current maps apply in 2024.”
