Wisconsin Redistricting Cases:  the 1990s

Prosser v. State Board of Elections,  793 F. Supp. 859 (W.D. Wis. 1992).

Following the failure of the legislature and the governor to agree upon a legislative redistricting plan based on the 1990 census, a three-judge federal panel issued an order promulgating state senate and assembly districts to govern the 1992 legislative elections.  The boundaries established by the court have not been superceded by the legislature and have governed all elections held since June 2, 1992.
