Federal court again rebukes GOP in redistricting suit

A federal court Tuesday again ruled that former GOP state Rep. Joe Handrick must give a deposition on his role in the redistricting maps Republican lawmakers drew this summer and scolded the Legislature's attorneys for "sandbagging."

The three-judge panel in Milwaukee ruled twice last month that neither Handrick, hired as a consultant on the redistricting process, nor documents in his possession are privileged and off limits to the Dems who sued over the maps Republicans crafted. In Tuesday's order, the court rejected a third attempt by the Legislature's attorneys to have Handrick and his documents declared privileged.

The sharply worded decision also accused the Legislature's lawyers of trying to "obfuscate the true facts" of Handrick's involvement in the process by changing details about his work in each of the filings "while at the same time suggesting that the Court based its prior decisions on erroneous or incomplete law and facts."
