On Monday, special master Richard Allen filed newly drawn remedial redistricting maps with a panel of three federal judges.
Allen proposed three different maps; however, each one would place Coffee County, which is currently represented by District 2 U.S. Rep. Barry Moore (R-Enterprise), into District 1, potentially pitting Moore against incumbent U.S. Rep. Jerry Carl (R-Mobile).
The plans would also split several counties, such as Mobile, Tuscaloosa and Jefferson Counties.
After the federal court struck down Alabama's second attempt to draw a new district map with an "opportunity district" with a larger black population, State Attorney General Steve Marshall said he would appeal the decision to the U.S. Supreme Court.
