Michael Friedman to Chair Commission to Reapportion Maine’s Congressional Districts
Rudman Winchell attorney Michael P. Friedman was elected unanimously to chair the Commission to Reapportion Maine’s Congressional Districts. The group is bipartisan and consists of 15 members.
A federal judge has ordered the Legislature to complete its work redrawing the line between Maine’s 1st and 2nd Districts by Sept. 30 to reflect population changes in the 2010 census. If the Legislature fails to do so, the Maine Supreme Judicial Court has until Nov. 15 to finish the reapportionment. If the deadline still isn’t met, the job will be done by federal court.
Michael P. Friedman is a native of Old Town, Maine. He is a graduate of the University of Maine and Northeastern University School of Law. Prior to his association with Rudman Winchell, Mike worked in the legal departments of Kemper Insurance Group in Chicago and Liberty Mutual Insurance Company in Boston, and as a legal advisor to the United States Civil Service Commission in Washington, DC. Mike is a past member of the Maine Workers’ Compensation Commission Advisory Group.
Mike served as a chairman of the Maine Ethics Commission from 2007-2009.
