JUNEAU - A state court judge is holding the Alaska Redistricting Board to its proposed timeline for redrawing the state's political boundaries.


Under the schedule approved by the board last week, the panel plans to begin the process of drafting a new plan Wednesday, with a goal of having a finalized plan by July 12. Chairman John Torgerson had said that timeline could slip by a day or so.


Superior Court Judge Michael McConahy on Tuesday found the board's time frame is similar to one he had earlier proposed. But in a footnote to his order he said violation of the deadline "carries with it all remedies available under the rules and common law."
