C. Robert Heath, one of the founding partners of Bickerstaff Heath Delgado Acosta LLP–a 30-lawyer firm with offices in Austin, El Paso, Houston, and the Rio Grande Valley–has been involved in redistricting since 1971.  He has represented hundreds of governmental entities in drawing districts and obtaining preclearance from the Department of Justice.  In addition, he has represented many governments in significant federal voting rights litigation in Texas and in the District of Columbia district courts, in the Fifth Circuit, and in the U.S. Supreme Court.  These cases include Chen v. City of Houston and Lepak v. City of Irving, both of which present the issue of whether non-citizens should be included in the apportionment base for one person-one vote purposes.
