New filings by the House Elections Committee, AG Jim Hood, and the NAACP in the redistricting lawsuit

These were filed yesterday:

Response of House Elections Committee in Opposition to the Motion of the Mississippi Republican Party to Appoint Expert (Exhibit A) - Strong arguments here. Along the lines of Sen. Burton's Response in Opposition from the other day, except from the House side. The exhibit attached to the Response is an affidavit from Rep. Tommy Reynolds that helps explain the process.

Attorney General Jim Hood's Motion to Adopt 2011 Legislative Plans as Interim Remedy for 2011 Elections Only

NAACP's Motion for an Order Directing the Mississippi AG to Submit the 2011 House and Senate Plans Passed by Each Chamber to the US AG for Section 5 Review (Exhibits 1, 2, and 3) - Here's something interesting. If the Court issues the order prayed for in this motion, it will mean that the Court is strongly considering instituting the 2011 legislative plans as an interim remedy. This is definitely something to keep an eye on.
