Lawsuit Against Jackson County Board Dismissed



A judge is tossing out a lawsuit against the Jackson County Board.

The lawsuit was filed by former Republican candidate Darrel Dunham. He accused officials of altering district maps to favor Democrats in 2011.

U.S. District Judge Patrick Murphy found no basis for the case on multiple grounds. Dunham can file an amended complaint.

Three other candidates: Donald Barrett, Daniel Bost and Andy Wist were originally plantiffs in the lawsuit. A judge granted requests to have their names dropped from the suit.
