KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Testimony has ended in a federal court trial over the Kansas redistricting process.
Closing arguments are scheduled to start Wednesday afternoon. Attorneys were asked to focus final remarks on the constitutionality of the maps being considered by the court.
The three judges hearing the case suggested that they would be willing to draw maps for the Kansas House, Senate, State Board of Education and four U.S. House seats, even though legislators generally agreed on where the 125 state House districts would be drawn.
Robyn Renee Essex, a Republican precinct committee member from Olathe, filed the lawsuit earlier this month against Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the state's chief elections official.
