Florida's map for Congress declared unconstitutional

A coalition of groups now challenging Florida's map for Congress wants a judge to act quickly now that the map has been declared unconstitutional.

Last week, a circuit judge ruled that the state legislature illegally drew Florida's Congressional Districts to benefit the Republican party.
But the judge did not specify who should redraw the map or when it should be redrawn.

Lawyers for the groups, which include the league of women voters, filed a motion on Monday asking the judge to hold a hearing to figure out what should happen next.
The Florida legislature has not yet announced whether it plans to appeal the ruling.
