Attorney General Greg Abbott is going through with his efforts to stop state House and Senate redistricting maps from being implemented. And he is taking that fight all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Abbott filed a request for an emergency stay on Monday.

The Supreme Court is asked by the state to "review the redistricting case on an expedited basis, reverse the federal district court’s unlawful decision and prohibit the district court’s interim map from being implemented."

In a statement Abbott said:


"Today’s appeal emphasizes that no court has, at any time, found anything unlawful about the redistricting maps passed by the Texas Legislature. It is judicial activism at its worst for judges to draw redistricting maps of their own choosing despite no finding of wrongdoing by the State of Texas."
