LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Monday the Legislative Research Commission told the appellate court that Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd overstepped his authority, in throwing out the new lines and ordering lawmakers to run in existing districts.

Unhappy with the outcome of the redistricting battle, House Republicans filed suit in January, challenging the constitutionality of the new boundaries.

A Senate Democrat displaced in the redistricting process joined the lawsuit, which contends the new districts could have been better balanced by population, and redrawn in such a way that fewer counties would have been split among districts.
