New map submitted to Federal Judge

Albany--Yet another twist today in Albany's redistricting case.  Judge Louis Sands will soon decide whether a new group will be allowed to intervene in the case. 

Ladd Jordan and Peter and Ashley Studl want their map to be considered by the city. It's the fifth map submitted to the court but so far the judge is only officially considering two. Judge Sands will decide by Friday whether two others will be allowed. Until the issue is resolved there will be no city elections. Some city commission candidates who previously qualified could find themselves in different districts.
