A federal court has ruled that Texas redistricting maps can be used for upcoming elections.

A San Antonio federal court issued a 26-page opinion on Friday, holding that there was no basis to block the use of the 2013 redistricting maps.

The court said that the maps passed by the Texas Legislature in the special session should be used for the 2014 elections.

Lauren Bean, a spokeswoman for Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott’s office, said “We are pleased that the court agreed to allow the 2014 elections to proceed on time using the new maps drawn by the Legislature. That certainty benefits all Texans.”

Bean continued, saying “The State will continue to respond in court to the unwarranted challenges to the new maps by the Obama administration and various plaintiff groups.”
