BATON ROUGE - A group of East Baton Rouge Parish residents is back in court, hoping to block a new nine-member redistricting plan that shrank the size of the parish School Board by two seats.

The residents filed court papers late Monday seeking an immediate review of a lower court ruling upholding the new plan.

Alfreda Bester, attorney for the nine plaintiffs and general counsel for the Louisiana NAACP says she expects the 1st Circuit Court of Appeal to take her up her emergency request before qualifying starts Wednesday for the Nov. 4 elections.
