BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - A Baton Rouge judge ruled that the maps the East Baton Rouge School Board approved in May are illegal according to East Baton School Parish School Board member for District 2 Dadrius Lanus.

Judge Tarvald Smith, a former school board member ruled the maps were illegal because they split precincts unnecessarily.

They will have until 8 a.m. on Wednesday, June 22 to redraw them.

If they are unable to come up with new ones the judge will implement another proposed map that does not split any precincts.
