The state's politically explosive re-districting case was back in court.
Attorney General Jerry Kilgore filed his appeal in the case yesterday, asking the state Supreme Court to set aside a Salem judge's ruling -- and to do it quickly.
Kilgore's motion asks the state's high court to bar Judge Richard Pattisall from enforcing his order that new legislative lines be drawn, and new House of Delegates elections be held this year.
In March, Pattisall ruled that the Republican-dominated Legislature sought to win more seats by packing Democratic-leaning black precincts into fewer districts.
