Plaintiffs say newly drawn congressional districts still favor Republicans and discourage black representation in Central Florida.
But the defense argued Wednesday before a judge the new districts follow his order and asked for his approval.
Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis had ruled the districts unlawfully favor Republicans and ordered the Legislature to redraw them.
David King is a Central Florida attorney for the League of Women Voters and other groups suing over the districts. He rejects the argument the new districts protect black representation.
