The House filed a document Monday asking that a Leon County circuit judge be able to consider the redistricting plans.

The House made the move after a special legislative session collapsed last week without lawmakers agreeing on a redistricting plan. The special session was called after the Supreme Court last month found that current congressional districts violated the anti-gerrymandering “Fair Districts” standards.
