PHOENIX -- Federal judges are sticking by March 25 as a start date for a trial on a challenge to Arizona's map of legislative districts.

Lawyers for the state redistricting commission and Republicans who backed the challenge to the map have been arguing over pretrial disclosures and whether the trial can start on schedule.

But several orders by a panel of three judges keep the March 25 trial date and respond to other disputes.

One order said the commission cannot withhold certain documents based on claims of the legal privilege held by legislative bodies.

Another order rejected a commission's request that the commission's lawyers be ordered to give him various records, which he said he needed for a pretrial deposition.

The Republicans' lawsuit contended that the commission drew districts with unequal populations to benefit Democrats.
