TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Reuters) - The Florida Supreme Court on Thursday ordered the redrawing of some of the state's U.S. congressional districts before the 2016 elections.

The state's high court found the legislature's redistricting plan was "constitutionally invalid," the latest decision in a long-running legal battle over gerrymandering in the state.
