Partial deal close in Texas redistricting case
Attorney: Partial compromise in Texas redistricting case 'very close,' but still disagreements
By The Associated Press

SAN ANTONIO (AP) ' An attorney for one of several minority rights challenging Texas' new Republican-drawn electoral maps says the two sides are close to agreeing on a new state Senate map.

Attorney Gerald Hebert told a panel of federal judges Wednesday that the two sides are "very close" to reaching a deal on the state Senate map. However, the sides still disagree on how the Texas House and the state's congressional districts should look.

The lawsuit already has pushed the Texas primaries from March's Super Tuesday into April and now appears likely to delay it further into May.

The agreement would be the first full compromise in the Texas redistricting battle that has dragged on since last summer.
