SAN ANTONIO (AP) – The fight over Texas voting maps is back in federal court.

A three-judge panel in San Antonio on Wednesday will hear arguments from state attorneys and minority rights groups for the first time since the November elections. That’s when Texans voted based on temporary political boundaries drawn by the federal court.

Gov. Rick Perry wants the Legislature to ratify those maps as permanent in a special 30-day summer session. Some conservatives worry that Republicans will end up with worse maps for 2014 if they don’t take action.

Minority rights groups say the court’s maps are flawed and need to be redrawn.

The League of United Latin American Citizens is one of nine plaintiffs that sued the state. Attorney Luis Vera says the maps “screw up too many neighborhoods” to remain.
