U.S. District Court Judge Dale Drozd ordered MALDEF and attorneys for the county of Kern to hold a settlement conference on March 28 to decide when the lines of the Kern County Board of Supervisors should be redrawn.
But it was clear that he is leaning toward ordering Kern County to redraw the political maps that govern who can run for Kern County supervisor this year. That could throw two active supervisorial campaigns into turmoil.
Drozd obviously wants the county and MALDEF to find a solution of their own.
“If I get word on March 28 that there is no agreement I’m issuing an order on March 28,” he said.
