TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Three federal judges are allowing at least 13 individuals to intervene in a lawsuit over the Kansas Legislature's failure to redraw the state's political boundaries.

The judges decided Monday that Congressman Kevin Yoder and two legislators will be among those allowed to participate in the case.

Yoder filed his request Monday morning, just before the hearing. The two legislators are House Minority Leader Paul Davis, a Lawrence Democrat, and Senate reapportionment committee chairman Tim Owens, an Overland Park Republican.

Secretary of State Kris Kobach has argued that the number of people allowed to intervene should be limited. But Presiding Judge Kathryn Vratil said the court wanted to make sure it did not limit the information it receives.
