On Deck -- Harris et al v Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission

Bright and early Monday morning attorneys square off in the high-stakes battle before a three-judge panel in federal court over Arizona's legislative district maps.

After months of motions, pleadings, counter pleadings and depositions (not to mention spending gobs of money on lawyers), opening arguments are scheduled for 8:30 am at the Sandra Day O'Connor Federal Courthouse in Phoenix. Each side will have, if I understand it correctly, one-half hour to start what is scheduled to be a six day trial.

I plan to attend the first day and intend to live tweet ( @AzEagletarian ).

By the way, there is no indication that having swarms of people attend the trial to support the IRC will be productive. So, attend if you're interested, but not to cause any kind of a ruckus.
