“This lawsuit provides an opportunity for the courts to lift the lid on the 2011 redistricting process and expose the motivations behind it,” he said. “Pennsylvania voters have the right to choose their representatives free from partisan gerrymandering. The state constitution provides protections and I think the court will agree.”
