(AP) - The fight in Texas over the once-a-decade redrawing of election districts is causing a court battle that has been going on four years after the 2010 census.

Texas added four new Congressional seats in 2012, more than any other state, due to growth in the Hispanic population. However, Republicans drew maps to create three new districts that favor them.

The judges will hold a trial to consider additional changes in July.
