MPR Quotes Brian Dillon on Minnesota Redistricting Case


Litigation & Dispute Resolution Partner Brian Dillon was quoted in the MPR News article “Panel of Judges Hears Arguments on Minnesota’s New Political Maps” about Jan. 4 oral arguments in a Minnesota case asking a special five-judge panel to intervene and create new state legislative redistricting maps. Brian and Associate Amy Erickson represent a group of plaintiff-intervenors in the pro bono matter that seeks to ensure historically underrepresented BIPOC communities will be adequately represented in the process. A ruling in the case is expected on Feb. 15. “The campaign’s goal was simple: To develop a redistricting plan that best preserves diverse communities of interest in an effort to make government more responsive to their needs and interests,” Brian told MPR.
