KS Legislature's Failure to Act on Redistricting Could Cost State $600K

Kansas could face paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees in a federal lawsuit over the Legislature's failure to redraw the state's political boundaries this year.  As of today (THUR), attorneys for 15 of the 27 people listed as suing Secretary of State Kris Kobach over unequal political representation had submitted requests to have legal fees and expenses covered by the state. Together, their requests totaled more than $600,000.  Kobach said today (THUR) that the requests are excessive. He was initially listed as the only defendant because his office administers elections using whatever political boundaries are in place.  Most of the people listed as plaintiffs were allowed to join the lawsuit by three federal judges handling the case, the same judges who drew the district boundaries earlier this month.
