The state attorney general’s office has issued a statement calling the Cobb Commission’s move to amend its own electoral redistricting map “inappropriate and not legally binding.”

Jan. 20—The Cobb County School District has hired Cumberland-based Freeman Mathis & Gary to represent the district in an ongoing federal lawsuit over its school board district map passed by the General Assembly last year.

The lawsuit was first filed in the Northern District of Georgia in June by a coalition of civil rights and left-leaning groups, alongside several Cobb parents, alleging the map disenfranchised voters of color.

The map redrawing the boundaries of the seven-member board was supported by its Republicans, who hold a 4-3 majority.

The legal challenge of the maps was made on behalf of several groups, including the League of Women Voters of Marietta-Cobb, the New Georgia Project Action Fund and the Georgia NAACP, along with several Cobb parents, according to the initial filing.
