TALLAHASSEE (Reuters) - A Florida Circuit judge on Thursday invalidated congressional redistricting maps drawn up by the state's Republican-dominated legislature in 2012.

The decision follows a 13-day trial earlier this year in which several groups challenged the redistricting plan under which 17 Republicans and 10 Democrats were elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.
