The original judge said it violated voters' freedom of expression because their representation with the city would be cut in half.  But that makes no sense, because that argument means that at no time ever can anyone cut the # of seats on any city council, which government obviously has a right to do.  Why would 25 seats be violation but 42 seats wouldn't?   

You'd have to read the ruling.  There's obviously a qualitative factor here, as well as the rights of those who registered to run.  But let's move on...
