TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida's Supreme Court justices are warning the public not to talk to them about redistricting.

That's because the high court is required to review legislative reapportion maps. It also could get a challenge to congressional redistricting.

The Supreme Court issued a scheduling order on Wednesday. It notes the Code of Judicial Conduct forbids justices from discussing pending cases with the public.

The Legislature will vote on state House and Senate and congressional redistricting maps during its annual 60-day session that begins Tuesday. The order says the seven justices can only consider arguments made in court and in documents filed by actual parties in a case.
