Date Filed#Document Text
May 29, 2015 243 Opinion or Order of the Court STATEMENT OF JUDGE THOMPSON: I agree to the adoption of the 53 Order of 12/26/2012. Also, since the majority readopts its opinion and order of 8/2/2013 (doc. no. 174 ), I readopt my opinion concurring in part and dissenting in part (doc. no. 175 ). As to the majority's readoption of parts of its order and final judgment of 12/20/2013 (doc. nos. 203 and 205 ), I did not join in their conclusions that the plaintiffs failed to prove either their claim of vote dilution under § 2 or their claim of intentional discrimination in violation of § 2, the Fourteenth Amendment, and the Fifteenth Amendment, and I do not join in those conclusions today. I also do not join in the majority's readoption of part of their findings of fact, for I did not join in them at the time they were entered. Finally, I do not readopt my dissent (including the factual findings set forth) (doc. no. 204 ), for I am obligated to reconsider fully the racial gerrymandering claim in light of the legal principles articulated by the Supreme Court. Signed by Honorable Judge Myron H. Thompson on 5/29/2015. (dmn, )
