A Superior Court judge has sent the Alaska Redistricting Board back to the drawing board yet again.
On Friday, Judge Michael McConahy of Fairbanks rejected a revised plan redrawing the state's political boundaries that the redistricting board adopted earlier this month. That revision was crafted after an earlier plan was sent back by the Alaska Supreme Court.
The high court ordered the board to redraw its plan following a process laid out in an earlier case.
McConahy delayed the effect of his order for five business days pending a possible appeal to the state Supreme Court.
The redistricting board has scheduled a public meeting Tuesday to decide whether it will appeal McConahy's order.
