Alabama Democrats failed in the legislature and in court Friday to stop new legislative districts
proposed by Republicans.

Two legislative committees turned down redistricting plans drawn by Democrats and approved Republican-backed plans Friday.

Montgomery County Circuit Judge Charles Price rejected a request by Democrats to issue a temporary restraining order against the redistricting process. The judge, a Democrat, ruled he can't enjoin a redistricting plan that hasn't made it all the way through the legislature.

The full House and Senate will take up the redistricting plans Monday.
