Voters head to court to protect new congressional map

Voters are heading to federal court Friday to protect Pennsylvania's new, non-partisan congressional map made by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. 

These voters will be represented by the Public Interest Law Center and Arnold & Porter. 

The court will hear argument on the voters' motions to dismiss the new lawsuit against the new map. 

"The state legislators and congressmen want a federal court to overrule the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on a matter of state constitutional law. That is not how it works," said Stanton Jones of Arnold & Porter. "This new federal lawsuit violates every rule in the book."

Arguments begin at 11 a.m. in the U.S. Courthouse in Harrisburg.
