The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors' public hearing on proposed redistricting changes lasted more than four hours Tuesday and featured dozens of speakers who spoke glowingly of 4th District Supervisor Don Knabe, while others warned of lawsuits if a second Latino-majority district is not created.

The hearing centered on a proposal brought forth by the county's Boundary Review Committee that was tasked in November 2010 with drawing new lines to reflect population changes found in the 2010 Census.
