CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A panel of federal judges on Tuesday voided West Virginia’s congressional redistricting plan and told the Legislature and the governor that it would impose a new blueprint if they do not come up with an alternative by Jan. 17.

In a 2-1 ruling, the judges concluded that the plan violates the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause because the state’s three congressional districts aren’t as equal as they should or could have been. U.S. District Judge John Bailey dissented.
