The trial judge had ordered the House and Senate to produce documents and ruled that legislators and staff had to sit for depositions.
The legislature appealed and the appellate court found (in a 2-1 decision) that the politicians did not have to provide testimony or documents. The FairDistricts Coalition asked the Supreme Court to take the case and last week the Court agreed.
Oral arguments will be heard on September 16th.
FairDistricts writes, "We are on the path to a pivotal decision that will determine whether Tallahassee politicians will be held responsible for any disregard of the constitutional redistricting rules established by Florida voters."
