The newly proposed lines for the New York State's political districts came under fire Monday, as Democrats threaten to file a lawsuit that would ask a judge to intervene.

Critics accused the lawmakers of gerrymandering, while civil rights leaders claimed that maps did not fairly represent minorities in an increasingly diverse state.

A statement released by Gov. Andrew Cuomo's spokesperson, claimed the lines to be simply unacceptable and that they would be vetoed by the governor.

Cuomo, who unsuccessfully tried to persuade lawmakers to create an independent commission for the redistricting, has previously said that he would veto the lines drawn by the legislators.

The lines, which are redrawn every 10 years, were released last Thursday and were drawn primarily by Albany's majority parties: the Republican Party in the State Senate and the Democratic Party in the State Assembly.

Congressional lines have yet to be drawn.

The legislative task force that drew the new maps has scheduled nine hearings to gather public comments, the first of which took place Monday morning in Albany.
