Little bit of a Friday surprise here. NAACP has filed two motions to amend the judgment in the redistricting case.
Motion to Amend Judgment
Second Motion to Amend Judgment
I haven't had a chance to read through both, but I assume that the Second Motion is an amended version of the Motion to Amend Judgment. ECF is tricky that way.
What does this mean? Well, it's sort of like Rep. Tommy Reynolds asking for a special redistricting session yesterday: when you're up late in the game, you can swing away. The only downside here would be for the three judge panel to completely reverse course and start drawing new districts, something that is exceedingly unlikely. Given that it appears it's the current lines or the Joint Committee proposal, I guess they figure there's no harm in taking a swing for the fence.
