On April 20, 2022, a federal three-judge panel issued a memorandum opinion and order regarding the primary election for the General Assembly. That decision is attached. Notably, the majority on the panel held that:

 

 

·         “In the event that Ohio does not reach a resolution before May 28, we will order that the state-legislative primary races be held on the special-election date of August 2, 2022. The evidence before the court makes overwhelmingly clear that this is the least disruptive, costly, and confusing way for a federal court to preserve Ohioans’ right to vote in primary races required by state law.

·         This court declines to order the implementation of a map until the last possible day, which we find to be May 28, 2022. Based on the testimony at the preliminary-injunction hearing, this is the deadline for Ohio’s election officials to feasibly implement a federally imposed map in time for the August 2 primary and to avoid disrupting the November 8 general election.

To meet the August 2 election date while affording the State as much time as possible to act, Map 3 is the map we will order to be implemented on May 28, for the 2022 election cycle only, if Ohio does not approve a lawful map before then.” See Gonidakis v. LaRose, Case No. 2:22-cv-0773, 4-5 (S.D. Ohio Apr. 20, 2022).
