NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A three-judge panel on Wednesday blocked a new Tennessee Senate redistricting map from taking effect, saying the GOP-controlled General Assembly violated the state constitution. by incorrectly numbering the new districts.

The 21-page ruling gives lawmakers 15 days to resolve the issue or judges will impose an “interim dispatch map” that will only apply to the 2022 election.
