An attorney for one of nine groups suing to block electoral redistricting maps drawn up by Texas' Republican-led Legislature says negotiations between the two sides have stalled.
Luis Vera, who represents the League of United Latin American Citizens, said Monday he wouldn't bet on a deal getting done in time to keep Texas' April 3 primaries from being delayed again. They were originally scheduled for March.
A federal court in San Antonio last week gave the sides until Feb. 6 to draw up temporary maps that would remain in place through November's election. If they don't, Texas' primaries will be pushed back.
Vera says a major obstacle is that the state isn't involving all parties in the negotiations.
The Texas attorney general's office didn't immediately return an email seeking comment.
