"Democrats, GOP both threaten suit over Harford redistricting"

"Harford County Democrats rejected a deal that would have given them one seat on the panel that will draw new County Council boundaries, before the council voted to exclude the party entirely from the redistricting process.
Democrats, who trail registered Republicans in Harford County by fewer than 1,500 voters, are now planning a legal challenge to the county provision that led to their being left out. Party members became ineligible to serve on the commission when they did not pull 15 percent of the votes in the November council election and are now deemed a fringe party under the county charter."
