WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - June 22, 2015) - Judicial Watch announced it will host a press conference at the National Press Club on Wednesday, June 24 to announce a new federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of congressional districts in Maryland. The lawsuit, to be filed on Wednesday, will propose a straightforward method to allow courts to prevent politicians of any party from drawing legislative districts that dilute the power of voters and arbitrarily divide communities.

Plaintiffs representing each Maryland congressional district are participating in the new lawsuit, including Maryland Delegate Neil C. Parrott, Maryland Delegate Matt Morgan, and former Maryland legislator and gubernatorial candidate Ambassador Ellen Sauerbrey.

Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch president, and Robert Popper, director of Judicial Watch's Election Integrity Project are participating in the press conference.
