RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A lawsuit challenging several Virginia legislative boundaries is going to trial.
The trial starts Monday and could last through Thursday in Richmond Circuit Court.
The lawsuit was brought by OneVirginia2021, a redistricting advocacy group. The group says lawmakers during the 2011 redistricting process violated the requirement that election districts must be compact.
The group is challenging 11 House and Senate districts, which are currently held by both Democrats and Republicans.
