Latest lawsuit calls for new congressional lines

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A judge has been asked to draw new
boundaries around Kentucky's six congressional districts.
Lexington residents filed a lawsuit in Franklin County Circuit
Court on Thursday, contending that the congressional districts have
grown out of balance over the past decade.
After weeks of negotiations, the House and Senate were unable to
agree on redrawn congressional districts. That meant congressional
candidates had to file to run in districts as they existed for the
past decade.
