CBS: Judges toss Cross, Radogno remap lawsuit

 

A panel of federal judges has tossed a Republican lawsuit that challenged the Democrat-drawn map of new Illinois legislative districts.

 

The panel dismissed the lawsuit by House Republican leader Tom Cross (R-Plainfield) and Senate Republican leader Christine Radogno (R-Lemont) on Wednesday, and the Republican leadership is deciding whether to appeal.
